Join us at The Tallest Poppy (103 Sherbrook St.) for our monthly First Friday Afterparty after all the art shows in The Exchange wrap up! This free event offers a welcoming, safe space for all communities to gather and celebrate art, drink, and dance in a unique venue.

This month, Synonym Art Consultation is honored to be hosting The Daughters of Reykjavík (Reykjavíkurdætur) as part of The Tallest Poppy Residency Program. Five of the sixteen members of the all-female rap crew will be in attendance, creating a unique, one-night immersive installation that combines sculpture and video. Visitors will enter into a transformed diner that is taken over by these women.  The daughters will be creating a shrine filled with memorabilia, symbolism, and quotes dedicated to their absent collective members throughout the night. The video piece will be mostly produced in Iceland beforehand, allowing all members to participate in this overseas project.

As per usual, this free event will evolve into a dance party, with music this month by the talented BABA YAGA. We hope to see you out for what is sure to be a very special night. Get there early, the diner is sure to fill up quick!
