Space Dates is a collaborative project by Canadian queer artist-activists Jessica Whitbread and Morgan M Page/Odofemi focused on interrogating, in often hilarious and somewhat surreal ways, the intersection of the criminalisation of HIV non-disclosure, the ‘safer sex industrial complex,’ and queer women’s sexualities. The project centres on the visual theme of two women in spacesuits going on cute dates and attempting to have so-safe-you-can’t-even-feel-it sex with each other.

Space Date –“Picnic” was first performed as part of a Day With(out) Art at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2012 as an extension of thePosterVIRUS collaboration with Onya Hogan-Finaly on I DON”T NEED TO WEAR A SPACE SUIT TO FUCK YOU!
