Thursday Lates: Canadian Art Issue Launch

June 27, 2019 at 7:00pm

Join us for an evening of conversation and performance with Canadian Art editors and local artists to celebrate the launch of Canadian Art's summer issue!

Exploring the theme of "Femme," this issue looks at the experiences and increased visibility of queer, trans and nonbinary communities—who for years have used the term “femme” to describe their complex relationship with the feminine. How is art helping us to reposition things traditionally understood as “girly”? This issue celebrates FEMME, and femme-nisms, going beyond essentialism to explore—with irreverence, provocation, humour and style—the power of femme in art, fashion, style, performance and more.

With special guests Lauren Fournier and Jayne Wilkinson (Canadian Art), Zoe Schneider (Regina artist) and Jaye Kovach and Leo Keiser (of Homo Monstrous).
