Reading + Book Launch
December 14, 2016: 7:30pm

At Thunder & Lightning Ltd, 23 Bridge Street.

The non-fiction essays that make up Notes from a Feminist Killjoy: Essays on Everyday Life attempt to think publicly about why we need feminism, and especially why we need the figure of the feminist killjoy, now. From the complicated practices of being a mother and a feminist to building friendships amongst women as a community-building and -sustaining project, to writing that addresses rape culture from the Canadian context and beyond, Notes from a Feminist Killjoy invites the reader into a conversation gender, feminism, and living in our inequitable world.

Beth Frey is a Montreal-based artist working in drawing, sculpture, installation and performance. Using humour and pathos, Frey examines the boundaries and ruptures of the body as sites of growth and creativity vis-a-vis the boundaries and ruptures intrinsic to the art objects she creates.

Marco D’Andrea
June 25, 2017 - July 29, 2017

Born in Ontario, Canada, D’Andrea grew up in the small town of Sharon. In this semi-rural community the legacy of the 1970s – long hair, big cars, loud stereo systems and hard rock on vinyl – still had influence. Sound had weight and dimension; D’Andrea has strong memories of lying on the floor listening to Deep Purple records, feeling the bass in his body and imagining different worlds.
