Dead Red: Long Live Gingers!
Tues 18 Sept
@ Cass Art, Islington, 8-10pm
Red heads are a dying breed, threatened with extinction. As the Netherlands celebrate ‘ National Redhead Day’ this month, we pay our own tribute to the most controversial of hair colours by presenting a host of befreckled beauties in all their dead redhead glory. Fetishised and villainised throughout history in art and culture, we explore the stereotypes and mythology surrounding gingers and their powers. From their alleged beastly sexual desires, value as human sacrifices to acting as inspiration for artists from Boticelli to Klimt, explore the idea of the red heads as ‘mutant/monster/muse’. Bring a picture of your own favourite famous ginga ninja to add to our ‘Altar of Auburn’.
With spicy treats on offer including gingerbread figures, ginger nut biscuits and ginger beer.
Get your tix from Cass Art NOW or buy them on the door…bring a flame-haired friend for free sweet treats!
