This is the second exhibition dealing with sexual identity. The exhibition took the form of two concurrent installations, one is Bruce Hugh Russell’s Sala dell’ermafrodito and the other is G.B. Jones’s Bad.Good.
Toronto artist, G.B. Jones’ Bad.Good. showcases drawings, which co-opt the style of Tom of Finland by using all female characters, along with the 1992 video The YoYo Gang. As the originator, with Bruce La Bruce, of the Toronto ‘zine J.D.’s and a member in the band Fifth Column, Jones production aggressively differentiates her lesbianism from a theoretical position and grounds it in a street vernacular.
