Very Dirty Laundry

Just when you really thought you’d seen it all, Keep Six Contemporary curator Rafi Ghanaghounian brings us Explicit Fantastic. The brand new author series (accompanied by a recently opened art show) brings some A-list writers out of the bars and Brigantine Room and into the—wait for it—laundromat. Tonight, Hollywood Coin Lounge (180 Ossington Avenue) will play host to some scribes aiming to unload some dirty words. The idea behind the ongoing series is to bring NSFW literature into functioning laundries, creating an ongoing forum for Toronto talent to share “their most explicit sexual ink” and “pleasuring word efforts” with you. There’s no cover, but you are asked to bring a couple of loads of dirty laundry to do while you enjoy the reading. Tonight’s event starts at 7 p.m. and offers Greg Kearney, Tamai Kobayashi, Dwayne Morgan, Angela Rawlings, Steve Venright, and Zoe Whittall. Explicit Fantastic the reading is also accompanied by Explicit Fantastic the exhibition, housed at Keep Six Contemporary (938 Bathurst Street). The show, which runs until November 30, also explores sex and sexuality in contemporary culture with works by a variety of practicing contemporary artists, including Bruce La Bruce, Shary Boyle, Thrush Holmes, Kelsey Brookes, Richard Kern, CUM, Dan Witz, TILT, Junko Mizuno, Rikki Kasso, Allyson Mitchell, and Tomori Nagamoto.
