Fairytale Slit Bits

Fairy Tales - Slit Exhibition and Magazine Issue #13
Launch opens Wednesday 20 February at Mori Gallery

The girls and bois from glossy sexy Slit: dyke sex magazine present their fifth annual exhibition, this year with a little romance! Celebrating the launch of Slit's thirteenth issue, this exhibition explores Fairy Tales both in the literal and metaphoric sense. Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, Sleeping Beauty and Prince Charming, the Princess and the Pea, Goldilocks, Rumpelstiltskin and the Wizard of Oz are included amongst the tales interpreted by queer women artists bending the sweetest of dreams, and the coldest of night sweats.I t’s the magic kiss – that brings forth life, and transforms, and it is the nightingale’s clear song. It’s happy endings. It’s the issue for queer histories.

Fairy Tales is an official event of the 2008 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival
