OH GOD, THE SHAME!
Tuesday 24 October, 7pm
(free, no booking required)
Is Internet shaming a useful political tool or just mob rule? Join Ruth Waters and The White Pube (Gabrielle de la Puente + Zarina Muhammad) for a presentation and discussion around the complexities of Internet Shaming.
Ruth Waters (1986, UK) lives and works in London. She graduated from MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths University of London in 2016. Recent shows and screenings include, Seep at Peer Gallery, Like Caramel That Has Melted and is Soft and Stretchy at Pump House Gallery, Cactopia at Annka Kultys Gallery, and Solopreneur at Kingsgate Projects. She is the current recipient of the Goldsmiths MFA Studio Award 2016/17, a partnership funded by Acme Studios, Jane Hamlyn, and the Artisa Foundation.
The White Pube is the collaborative practice of artists Gabrielle de la Puente and Zarina Muhammad under which they write criticism, exhibit, and curate. It is based at thewhitepube.com and on Instagram and Twitter as @thewhitepube. Since its launch in October 2015, The White Pube have gained an international readership and an involved social media following due to their success in diversifying the identity of the art critic and empowering two writers as working class and a woman of colour. TWP write to demand artistic quality from practitioners and institutions, decolonise and democratise gallery audiences, and encourage subjective criticism as an accessible and relevant form of art writing.
