We showcase and celebrate contemporary art and text with a focus on girly, melancholy material.
- We’re fascinated by all things feminine and any lesser known or hidden stories.
- We’re interested in challenging ideas of art: memes, new media, digital, and conceptual art.
- We love tragedies, a darker outlook, and (especially) black comedy.
- We’re supportive of emotional explorations.
