Sheroes is an amazing group whose monthly party series has run in Toronto since last year. They’ve dedicated each night to a positive icon in pop culture, showing video, spoken word and performance inspired by one of the “League of Legendary Ladies”, including Joni Mitchell, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, Madonna, Yoko Ono, Erykah Badu, Etta James, Marianne Faithfull and Dolly Parton. The last evening, dedicated to Grace Jones, had an extraordinary performance by Lillian Allen with the House of Monroe.
For more context on what it meant to have Lillian Allen headlining this event, check out the Sheroes Blog for an interview with pioneering gallerist Paul Petro.
The next Sheroes event will take place on June 28th at the Beaver and will be in tribute to Dusty Springfield.
Lillian Allen’s collection with Women’s Press Literary is Women Do This Every Day.
