Notes
"Lesbian artists: you either love 'em or date 'em! So said nobody ever, but the sentiment holds true for photographer Sasha Brunelle, an acolyte of Miriam Ginestier's famed Meow Mix cabarets, which ended their 15-year run at Sala Rossa this past June. A breeding ground (and scratch pole) for “bent girls and their buddies” since its inception in 1997, the hors-Village performance and dance party event shone a spotlight on a generation of queer artists, giving spectators a sense of belonging and excitement for their sexualities and arty desires. Brunelle's homage in the form of a photo and video exhibit, along with a colour catalogue, The Meow Mix Retrospective, celebrate the bygone soirée's lasting influence at Galerie RATS9 to Feb 2."
