Extremely talented artist, and a good homie of ours Lucy Owen has a brand new Juggalo-themed exhibit that will be debuting on December 4th, which is the night before Twiztmas in Detroit! This exhibit will be a celebration of Juggalettes and is a mixture of paintings, drawings, and photographs! There’s also a top secret project involving nearly 200 Juggalettes from around the world, but we can’t say anything else about it.
Check out a sneak peek of some of the art that you’ll be seeing at the exhibit should you decide to go:
Here’s a little more info about the event:
Lucy Own – Beautiful (Indestructible) Women of the Juggalo World
Exhibition Opening Reception
Friday, December 4th: 6PM – 10PM
December 2014 saw UK artist Lucy Owen’s overwhelmingly successful debut in the USA with “Where the Juggalo Roam”. This December she’s back, with a brand new body of work, ready to take the viewer further into one of America’s most maligned and bizarre subcultures – and this time it’s all about the ladies.
Juggalos get a bad rap. One of the most frequent accusations leveled against them is misogyny yet thousands of women enthusiastically fill a large percentage of the demographic. How does that work? It’s widely agreed that hip hop culture in general is sexist and Juggalo culture is no exception. Owen contests, however, that misogyny is a misnomer. Yes, the vernacular can be scorchingly offensive to the female listener, but Juggalos (on the whole) do love women.
Who, though, are the women who love Juggalos? Owen has been on a year-long quest to find out. She reached out to, and got responses from, hundreds of Juggalettes and female Juggalos around the globe. We are pleased to invite you to come and experience the jubilant results of this unique interaction.
Exhibition opens 12/04/15 through 12/19/15
206 E. Grand River
