LIFESTYLE PLUS FORM BUNDLE—-JUNE 23rd..SATURDAY!

Lifestyle Plus Form Bundle is a feminist / queer / – print portfolio show at MADAME OF THE ARTS SATURDAY JUNE 23rd showcasing abstract works on paper by artists from Minneapolis, Chicago, New York,and Montreal. If formalist notions of art are described as  pure explorati…on of line/color/composition/shape devoid of context or content… What happens when intuitive abstraction is derived from a feminist/queer body? We are gathering these gestures to create a communal folder of abstracted decisions…to see how these forms are viewed and contextualized with queerness in mind, allowing for a political interpretation of non-representation. Works on paper range from silkscreens, risographs, offset prints, digital and xerox.
OPENING: SATURDAY JUNE 23rd (PRIDE WEEKEND) 8pm @ Madame of the Arts
Portfolios will be for sale.
DJ Set by PLUNGING NECKLINES
followed by Erotic Storytelling…details tba.

MALLEABLE: WORKS BY CASEY DEMING

SOLO EXHIBITION: MAY 18th-22nd
OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY MAY 18th at 8pm

 

For Casey’s first solo venture, he’s responding to the domestic setting of Madame of the Arts. For this exhibition he has created screenprints, wallpaper, shelving units and ramp wedges to display collections of ready-made and sculptural objects.

Casey’s print and poster work is a common fixture in the avant-whatever music and art scene of minneapolis. His flyers and poster work have become known for their sensuous, direct and designed refinement and Madame is proud to host his first solo art endeavor.

Femmeward Lens presents: “A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin.”

Thursday, October 27th at 8PM at Madame:

Get your gore-gawk on Femmeward Lens-style with “A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin”!

Considered by many to be Italian gore master Lucio Fulci’s masterpiece, this cult classic murder mystery is full of LSD orgies, melodramatic psychoanalysis and kinky lesbianism in swinging 1960’s London. A delusional woman (Florinda Bolkan) is the suspect in a series of erotic murders and it’s up to a policeman (Stanley Baker) to decipher fact from fantasy. Music by Ennio Morricone. Lucio Fulci—Spain/Italy/France—1971—98 mins.

If time and interest we might also show another 70’s blood-romp,

The Grapes of Death” (Les Raisins de la Mort)

Pesticides used in the local vineyards turn villagers into horribly mutated, zombie-like killers. When a young woman arrives in the town, her planned vacation turns into a horrifying nightmare. Jean Rollin cranks up the gore in this long-unavailable trash-film classic, presented uncut and uncensored, mastered from the original 35mm camera negative. Also known as Pesticide. In French with English subtitles. Jean Rollin—France—1978—90 mins

ALSO, serving popcorn and reptilian seductress sangria for a suggested donation!

— Angela / Femmeward Lens!
