Sheroes presents remix tribute to “Grande Dame”
Marianne Faithfull latest inductee to the “League of Legendary Ladies”
Sheroes will be presenting their latest event, Sheroes #8: Marianne Faithfull, on Thursday, March 22 at The Beaver (1192 Queen Street West).
The monthly, limited-run art party series — which brings together on and offline works that playfully and performatively explore the iconography and fan culture surrounding the “League of Legendary Ladies” — will be co-headlined by U.S. Girls and Ulysses Castellanos.
For Sheroes #8: Marianne Faithfull, organizer Rea McNamara has commissioned an impressive lineup of local and international artists and performers. Inspired by the Grande Dame’s various personas — the convent-educated waif in lace, the Soho junkie aristocrat, the husky-voiced survivor — these performances, digital animations and interactive installations will reinterpret and remix for one night only our current muse.
