Come to our art show!

Multi media work by (Lickety Split editor) Amber Goodwyn and video installation by Anita Schoepp
at La Galerie Espace
4844 Boul. St-Laurent (below St. Joseph)

Show runs from January 31st to February 4th
Vernissage is February 1st from 6-9pm
La Galerie Espace opening hours: Wednesday 5-9pm, Thurs-Sun 3-9pm

Threads is a showing of new multimedia work by Amber Goodwyn and Anita Schoepp, two friends, co-workers and collaborators. Concerned with the excavation of buried parts of the individual's identity, both artists pose searching questions and offer playful ruminations with their art practices.

Amber Goodwyn's work begins with her family photographs and history and ends with work that is a reflection of interior life, personal mythology and self-fictionalization. Focusing on images of her mother, Amber has created a series of mixed-media portraits and landscapes that reinterpret her memory of growing up in the Bahamas.

It Started with a Simple Question is an immersive video installation by Anita Schoepp wherein twenty-one different people performed their answer to the question 'how would you personify your sexuality?' The installation serves to examine how we approach sexuality, whether we use to seek out sex or if it has a broader emotive influence on how we interact with ourselves, others and shared spaces.

Hope to see you there!

Deadline Reminder for film fest: January 15th!

Lickety Split smut zine presents:
Daughters of Joy! Film + Video Festival (Call for Submissions!)

Calling all artists, fallen women, playboys, rakes, trollops and strumpets! Arm yourselves with a camera and submit your lascivious, libidinous and salacious motion picture creations to Lickety Split smut zine's first ever Daughters of Joy! Film and Video Festival.

Lickety Split smut zine, Montreal's own pansexual and sex-positive smut zine, is interested in promoting film and video that chooses to be forthright and frank in their explorations of gender and sexuality. We believe it is important to showcase

We encourage everyone to explore their own unique perspective on the intersection of sexuality / gender / eroticism. Members of traditionally disadvantaged groups are encouraged to submit. We encourage submissions from transgender people. This festival is free-to-submit and non-competitive.
