This Valentines Day the babes over at HUNTCLUB presents WITH PLEASURE.
The gallery will feature digital collages by our permanent resident Kathryn Macnaughton. A collector and lover of vintage pornography, Macnaughy will be exhibiting work inspired by classic nakies. For a little spice, they have brought in paintings by Sri Lankan born Rajni Perrera. Her creations feature voluptuous tribal women with an aesthetic that is inspired by texture patterns from around the globe.
FYI both artists approach this show with little censorship so expect a lot of nudity.
Tonight is opening night and gallery goers are invited into PORN FORT, an installation crafted in HUNTCLUB’s basement workshop. A collaboration with the uncarvedblock and Tyler Sammy, the fort encapsulates you in map projections and imagery of the explicit nature.
DJ Filthy Gorgeous will be playing deep sexy music alongside a screening of a A STUDY OF MOVEMENT. Produced by HUNTCLUB, the contemporary dance video features the work of choreographer Vanessa Kimmons.
WITH PLEASURE opens tonight from 6pm - 11pm and if you have other special plans the show runs until March 4th.

About the charities:
Skate4Cancer strives to hype up youth on the importance of cancer prevention and community building. When Skate4Cancer first came to fruition, Rob Dyer was sixteen years old. He had lost a mother, both grandmothers and a best friend to cancer. He had witnessed the people he loved fighting the toughest battles of their lives, and he wanted to redirect his sadness by pushing himself as hard as he could. The idea to skateboard from Los Angeles to Toronto came to him, and he went for it. Skate4Cancer continues to donate all proceeds to hospitals and charities.

GIFTS Foundation is a grassroots charity that our HUNTCLUB family and friends started 10 years ago. Our mandate is to continue to feed, rebuild homes, and educate underprivileged people. Every single cent we have raised in the last 10 years has gone directly to help nourish the lives and minds of the people we help. We are committed to bringing continued support to a rural village in central Vietnam.

These funds will be put towards helping spread cervical cancer awareness, as well as providing screening and prevention procedures. Grounds for Health’s award winning work is not only saving the lives of hundreds of women every year (from a prevalent yet easy to detect/treat) form of cancer, but it is also helping to reshape the way gender equality is looked upon in these communities.
