Don’t miss My Petite Bourgeois Revolution, opening tonight at Northern Contemporary 7-11pm!
A tongue-in-cheek Revolution for those suffering from first world problems, My Petite Bourgeois Revolution isnâ€™t about starvation, cake eating and guillotines. Itâ€™s about the lack of WiFi, overpriced coffee and overloaded transit. Itâ€™s an urbane revolution for the comfortable bourgeois elite, the art student sophisticate, and the bored bohemian who can’t get cable.
