Join us for Desperate Girl Karaoke, a zine launch and night of performances celebrating the closing of “You Look Like an Advert for Yourself”, an exhibition of new works by Vanessa Gravenor and Indrani Ashe. Indrani will read Fifty Dates of Grey, a Manifesto from the new Fifty Dates of Grey zine. Vanessa will give an artist talk, “In the female revolution, the woman will not be resurrected”. Indrani and Vanessa will perform Desperate Girl Karaoke in celebration of the angry and melancholic songstresses who make new worlds of solidarity possible by expressing their dissatisfaction with the current reality. Audience participation is encouraged. Please add your playlist suggestion in the event page.
“Fear, anxiety, and nostalgia are clear examples of the negative emotions involved in the project of detaching ourselves from familiar and cherished forms of identity.” - Rosi Braidotti “Affirmation vs. Vulnerability”
