After the success of the first screening of the same name at London’s Lewisham Arthouse in August, the art criticism website and research project is back for round two, and comes with the following statement:
“The White Pube is tired of white ppl, white walls, and white wine. So for one night only, we are hosting brown ppl, white walls and chai. Come and view work by brown artists in a real vacuum, where brown-ness is banal, where you can O.O the art without the white-iarchy lookin over ur shoulder, askin if they can eat ur Other.”
Part of the ICA’s Artists’ Film Club, London-based Zarina Muhammad and Gabrielle de la Puente of The White Pube will present a screening featuring a line-up of short films by artists from “South Asia and its diaspora,” including Somnath Bhatt, Sabella D’Souza, Raju Rage and Himali Singh Soin among others.
The event also runs alongside the ICA’s Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016 exhibition, which features Muhammad’s video Digjihad (2015) until January 22.
