Today: Susan Hobbs Gallery turns 20, a feminist comedy night, and an art show tries to redefine sex.
ART: Susan Hobbs Gallery is celebrating its 20th anniversary. For the occasion, it’s presenting Simple Present, Future Anterior, an art show that explores the idea of “temporality and the nature of memory.” Susan Hobbs Gallery (137 Tecumseth Street), 7 p.m.-9 p.m., FREE.
COMEDY: To prove that comedy shows can be funny without resorting to rape jokes or digs about women, some fine feminists are taking to the stage for a show called The Humourless Feminists Comedy Night. The event features a number of talented artists—including its host, local comedian Natalie Norman. Proceeds from the event will go to the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre. The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West), 7 p.m., $10 or PWYC.
ART: Valentine’s Day is coming soon, so get into the spirit with a new art exhibition. The Sex Show brings together a variety of different artworks aimed at probing the boundaries of what is considered “sexual.” Curated by Phil Anderson. Gallery 1313 (1313 Queen Street West), opening reception, 7 p.m.–10 p.m., FREE.
