MOUTHLEVEL Episode 5 - Humble Pie
For this talk, artist Russell Louder, will be making whipped cream as they engage in a discussion with attendees about their practice and critical examinations of whiteness and white supremacy. Following the discussion, Russell will stage a performance in response to several recent instances of white artists using the trauma of people of colour as subjects in their work, without being held responsible to these subjects or their histories, and, inevitably, conjuring more trauma for the depicted communities. Russell will read from a manifesto compiled of quotes from these artists as they respond to accusations of racism and cultural appropriation. Each time they recite the words I, Me, or Mine, Russell will be pied in the face with a plate of whipped cream.
