To The Surface :: SALA Exhibition by Meg Cowell
Our SALA show is by the wonderful Meg Cowell - the first artist to exhibit at the reading room 1 year ago!
These portraits feature varyingly ambiguous garments and items of fabric. Light catches a tiny constellation of bubbles. Dark water creatures waft to the surface.

September Meeting of the Feminist Reading Group 6:30 - 9:30
You might have heard about Gail Dines. You may have seen her on Q&A. You may have been so infuriated you yelled expletives at your television screen.
The good news is, now you can vent to your heart's delight (to/with/at other people!), because for this month's meeting, we're reading her controversial book 'Pornland: How Porn has Hijacked Our Sexuality'.
