Backstreet Girl Lecture by visiting artist Marianne Pon-Layus at MAWA

  • MAWA 611 Main Street Winnipeg Canada (map)

Free! Everyone welcome. Presented in partnership with La Maison des artistes.

This talk will explore street art created by Montreal-based artists, such as MissMe, Raf Urban, Final Girl and Zola. They go outside at night to glue unapologetic feminine figures in back alleys, train yards and other unsafe places. In doing so, they create ambiguous situations that challenge social norms, subvert stereotypes and change the meaning of popular culture, including internet memes, comics and advertisements.
