Sarah Milroy can really nail it and make me laugh, from her review of the Montreal Biennial (which I haven't seen this year, but have loved so much in the past):
"One room, organized by Montreal artist Melissa Mongiat, is filled with bits of paper stuck to the wall, scribbled on by gallery visitors invited to share their best compliment ever, some good news, a word of advice, and the like. The work is called The Good Conspiracy , and aims to “transfuse the city with positive energy,” but contributions are sadly bland: “I'm Pregnant.” “Eat carrots.” “Be Yourself.” The problem with public interface is that the public may – how to put this delicately – underperform."

Special guest Hank Bull in conversation with Mollly Sigalet aka Rose Bee
Sun. May 31 2009 from 8:00 – 10:00 pm
At the Beehive: 92 Amelia St. Cabbagetown, Toronto
The Woodn't Bees cordially invite you to The Cat Came Back: Films From the Kate Craig Archive. The event features three short films by Kate Craig that have been recently uncovered from her apartment at the Western Front where she lived and worked for over twenty years. Artist Hank Bull, Craig's partner and collaborator, and Kate Craig scholar Molly S. (Rose) will animate a selection of three short films. The Pink Poem (1977), Shark Fin Dance (1975), and Flying Leopard: Episode Six (1975) highlight Craig's practice as a performance artist, her use of clothing and costume as a medium, her sewing expertise and her early experimentation with film.
Craig was a multidisciplinary artist who worked in mediums including video, textile, performance, clothing and costume. In 1973, she co-founded the Western Front Society in Vancouver with eight other artists. At the time, Craig was better known as Lady Brute, her altar-ego performed in collaboration with her then husband Eric Metcalfe, also known as Dr. Brute. Craig became Lady Brute by dressing up in leopard print clothing and accessories from her collection of over 100 pieces. After a five-year performance as Lady Brute, Craig began to accumulate pink clothing, accessories, and household items that culminated in an extensive collection titled The Pink Poem. During the time of The Pink Poem, pink became a part of Craig’s everyday attire.
The Woodn't Bees are a collective that hosts an array of One Night Stand events that frivolously cross visual, audio, performative, tactile, taste, nasal and movement based modes of production in the bedroom of a Cabbagetown Victorian townhouse known as the Beehive.
Please R.S.V.P. by contacting the Woodn’t Bees at firstname.lastname@example.org. Guests are encouraged to wear their favorite leopard print and/or pink fineries. We will be serving pink desserts. Please bring a beverage of your choice.
