Paddy Jane Gallagher
The Original Hustler

May 1–31, 2006
Cabaret Nostalgia
672 Queen St W

The Original Huster is a celebration, investigation
and
deconstruction into the backroom moments that
made pinup
girls, gangsters, spies, courtesans, and cross-
dressing
women icons of the prohibition era.
Celebrated, they appear in classic form, printed on
the
backs of old jazz recordings.
Investigated, the untold moments that made them
icons are
observed with quiet intimacy, then exposed on
canvas, taking
on the painted quality of a vintage esquire.
Deconstructed, the hustle shifts hands, and the
originally
powerless become powerful.
