hex appeal are playing this super excellent artist showcase for the brilliant group exhibition i didn’t want flowers, i wanted you to fuck me. it’s our first time playing in the big smoke alongside fantastic aural & visual female artists & i’m super excited to be part of this. we play on the 18th of october but the exhibition runs from the 13th to the 19th so don’t miss out! check it out;

Women’s mental health is an area much stigmatised though socially ingrained ideas of “female hysteria”. For women artists suffering from mental illness, finding safe spaces free of this prejudice to showcase their work can prove extremely difficult. 
This is why Anthea LeBrocq, an activist for women and young people in the arts, has taken it upon herself to put together the inaugural exhibition of ‘I Didn’t Want Flowers, I Wanted You To Fuck Me’. Featuring 15 talented young women, the exhibition provides space for each artist to creatively express their experiences with anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, and addiction.While more women than men are affected by mental illness in Australia, the self-stigmatisation of young women with mental disorders is still highly prevalent. This stems from a culturally internalised reaction to dismiss to women’s mental issues as just “hysteria” or “overreacting”.
'I Didn't Want Flowers, I Wanted You To Fuck Me' aims to create a space free from this stigma - the exhibition will be partnering with Sydney Grrrls Club, an organisation devoted towards placing an honest, respectful and safe environment for young women online and Grrrls To The Front Festival, a celebration of women in the arts.'I Didn't Want Flowers, I Wanted You To Fuck Me' will run from October 13th to 19th at TAP Gallery, Burton Street Darlinghurst, and features work by Lizzie Nagy, Leah Jean, Ellie Rose, Amelia Rose, Georgia Denton, Ellen Virgona, Alexis Aquino, Anthea LeBrocq, Maddy Carroll, Maddy Young, Susanna Rose Sykes, Arielle Nguyen, Renae Titchmarsh, Naomi Beveridge and Alice Amsel.Opening night is on the 13th of October and will run from 6-9 PM, with complimentary alcoholic refreshments.


All of this is good!

  5. this’ll be called the harrowing, written by ryan strong, and I’m trying to get it moving along pretty quickly.

  6. These bands are fantastic and I made a flyer for them! They are playing far away from where I am now, in a place where I would like to be, and I still get to kind of participate by making a flyer. Music that helps people restore energy to be angry. To apply anger well and against oppression and to give a voice to things that dont get voiced. But now I will just enjoy some happy time here for a while.

hahaha im way into this"do you want some help, Edith?""NOoo!"(being offered help by a CBS reporter to take out her rubbish. They were angling for a david-and-goliath style dressing up of her struggle not to get her property bought and developed by big business in Ballard, Seattle. The construction would eventually envelope her house on 3 sides… )
