Rated RX: Book Launch with Yetta Howard and Sheree Rose
Celebrate the release of "Rated RX: Sheree Rose with and after Bob Flanagan" (The Ohio State University Press, 2020) with Sheree Rose in conversation with "Rated RX" editor Yetta Howard, followed by a discussion with Rated RX contributors including Martin O'Brien, Amelia Jones, Rhiannon Aarons, Luka Fisher, and Judy Ornelas Sisneros. While Sheree Rose is mostly known for blurring the boundaries between art and lived experience in the context of her full-time, Mistress-slave relationship with late partner, "supermasochist" Bob Flanagan, "Rated RX" shifts focus from Flanagan to Rose, presenting a feminist project that critically reassesses the artistic legacies of Rose. Curated with attention to queer-crip subjectivities and transgressive feminisms, "Rated RX" includes essays by and interviews with scholars, artists, and Rose’s collaborators that address gender politics, archival practices, minority embodiment, and disability in Rose’s work as well as more than eighty photographs and rare archival materials primarily based on Howard's archival work in the Rose/Flanagan Papers at ONE Archives. "Rated RX" is the first collection to underscore Sheree Rose as a legendary figure in performance art and BDSM subcultural history, reflecting her lifetime of involvement in documenting the underground and the transformative role her work plays in sexual, subcultural, and art exhibitionism.
