ArtCore: A fundraiser for the Fifth Annual Feminist Porn Awards

Friday November 6

Doors 8pm/show 9pm

Bread and Circus ( 299 Augusta Street )

$10 at the doorOne person's art is another person's porn, and one person's porn is another person's art. ArtCore will look at art-influenced porn and porn-influenced art with video screenings and performances that laugh in the face of boundaries between the erotic and the artistic.

Featuring clips from both new directors and new work from Feminist Porn Award winning directors, this evening promises you'll never look at fruit, hot dogs, Barbie dolls or fully clothed men in quite the same way again.

Art House Sluts - follows the rise and sexual downfall of artsy slut Maddie Superstar, with an impressive performance art scene starring Jiz Lee and Syd Blakovich along the way. Directed by Madison Young, winner of Feminist Porn Awards for Hottest Kink Film 2008 Bondage Boob Tube and 2009 for Perversions of Lesbian Lust, as well as Indie Porn Pioneer 2009.

Glamazons - Zaftig mega-star April Flores shows us what Barbie dolls are really good for. Directed by Carlos Batts, winner of an Honourable Mention Feminist Porn Award Winner for Voluptuous Biker Babes in 2009.

Headshot - A different take on Andy Warhol's "Blowjob". How explicit does something have to be to be called porn? What is too explicit to be called art? Directed by Jennifer Lyon Bell, winner of an Honourable Mention Feminist Porn Award for Matinee in 2009.

Dirty Diaries: 12 Shorts of Feminist Porn - select scenes from this groundbreaking set of diverse films from Sweden about desire, art, sex and more.

+ Performances:

*Dylan Ryan investigates the interplay of fantasy life and public space that is present in the creation of porn, through dance and more.

**Frances Mahon's "Donut Spectacular" is an intimate, interactive performance exploring sexiness, awkwardness, greed, and sugar. Help yourself!

***JP Robichaud of TheControlEnthusiast.com and Head Rigger for The Keyhole Sessions (www.thekeyholesessions.com) will show us how bondage can set us free while new and experienced bondage models tell us their relationship to the art.

****Ab Horrence treats us to a sexy, interactive bedtime story

+ raffles galore, art surprises, and more!
