League of Lady Wrestlers. Gettin Ready to Rumble!!! (film still), 2015. Directed by Morgan Tams and Aubyn O’Grady.
What if we existed in a culture that valued consent and embraced a spectrum of identities, where violence towards women and the LGBTQ community did not exist or get shrugged off as “boys will be boys”? What if we lived in a society where everyone was granted agency over their own bodies and was held equally accountable for their actions? In the Thick of It is a group exhibition exploring the social, political and emotional implications of imposed gender binaries. Artists include: League of Lady Wrestlers (Toronto, ON), Andrea Manica (Toronto, ON), Victor Romão (Windsor, ON), Anna van Milligen (Waterloo, ON).
