Students turn to exhibitionism

The media, information and technoculture and visual arts departments will come together to celebrate Salon/RAVE tonight – the party element of a 14-day art exhibition at the John Labatt's Visual Art Centre.

Steven Dam, a fourth-year combined honours MIT/visual arts student helping organize the rave, said Salon/RAVE is meant to be a combination of culture from the old Parisian salons and the more contemporary edginess of today's rave culture.

"The evening really defies categorization. People can come and dress in costumes and have their picture taken, their hair and nails done, listen to the live DJs spinning, have a facial and just hang out," he said.

Dam said Salon/RAVE is free and open to everyone. The event runs Oct. 4 from 7 p.m. - 11 p.m. and the artwork will remain on display until Oct. 12.

Why Feminism? Why Not!

Students can find answers to all their questions about women's issues all across campus next week and have a chance to win a new vibrator.

Why Feminism?, an awareness week dealing with women's issues at university, runs from Oct. 9-12 in the University Community Centre atrium. Sponsored by the Women's Issues Network, the week will focus on exploring the meaning of feminism and the status of women in Canada.

"Our main goal is to broaden the awareness of those not already concerned with women's issues," said Nicole Nelson, WIN co-ordinator. "We often get the same people attending, which is good, but we'd like everyone to get involved."

The week will consist of music by Western musicians, presentations by various women's groups, information booths throughout the UCC atrium and an interactive multimedia display entitled "Airing Western's Dirty Laundry."

A draw will end the week and one lucky winner will take home a new vibrator, Nelson added.
