The McMaster Museum of Art opens this summer with two exciting retrospectives! Join us at the museum on September 19, 5 – 8PM for the Opening Reception of The Clichettes: Lips, Wigs, and Politics.

Bridging theatre, lip-sync, dance, drag, costume, and comedy, the renowned Canadian artist trio The Clichettes (Louise Garfield, Janice Hladki, and Johanna Householder) developed a groundbreaking practice at the crossroads of performance art and feminist satire. This exhibition brings together over 150 costumes, props, videos, photographs, drawings, scripts, and archival materials that attest to The Clichettes’ radical vision for a better world.
