Can one achieve self-liberation through institutional engagement?
Here at LSB, we are developing a pseudo-sociological survey to better understand the ways in which humans adapt, conform, and/or break free from our various cultural institutions. In order to add to our body of knowledge, we are calling for self-selected participants to take part in our filmed interview series. Participants will be able to affect the intensity of their interview questions, and will have the option to take part in this experiment anonymously.
Organized by Vicki Syal and Kim Ye, this event will be kicked off with a live performance “Face On” by LA-based artist Thinh Nguyen at 2:00pm
From the artist:
Set up as a “makeup tutorial” in front of a camera phone on a tripod, I put on successive layers of makeup, turning my skin into “white” without a mirror. Afterwards viewers are encouraged to carry out the demonstrated challenge of doing makeup without mirrors and post it on their social media handle #nomirrormakeupchallenge
The performance will be followed by a casual Q+A with Lady Scumbag contributors Thinh Nguyen, Ali Kheradyar, Vanessa Conte, and Vicki Syal before we embark on the participant survey developed and administered by Pomona College video art student researchers.
