Default Cultural exchange: understanding the other side - 11-26-2021, 04:45 PM

In these difficult times, we need to reach across the aisle to understand what's wrong with them. One way to do that is through modern art. Today I want us to try to get to know Lubaina Himid, who the newspapers refer to as The artist who skewers white privilege. Let's dive in.

Painter Lubaina Himid says her work is not about making something pretty. "I don't expect you to attend a show of mine and go: 'It's very beautiful'. That's not what it is," she tells BBC Culture over a video call.

I agree. That's not what it is at all. Good start - let's look deeper.



"I made a series of paintings around a French ship called the Rodeur, which sailed with captured Africans from west Africa to the Caribbean.Rather than paint hundreds of people in great distress and dying, I wanted to create something that conveyed a sense of absolute inability to understand what was happening."

Well I think she skewered it. I have absolutely no idea what is happening in the picture. So let's hear from the Tate exhibition's co-curator Michael Wellen:

"[The bird-like woman] rests her hand on the shoulder of a seated man, who seems lost in thought – yet her presence is not necessarily reassuring or protective. Her alert yellow eyes look at us. The detail of the eye makes me want to back away, but it's too late, I'm already in the scene, sensing the tension between the figures and wondering about my own relation to them."

Exactly my thoughts too. Echoes of Rittenhouse: who do these people think they are, back away before it's too late, I'm on the scene. Let's agree this was a valuable exchange and we learnt a lot about what makes the other side crazy.


If I have seen further, it is by standing on the heads of others.

That's deep, Dr. Tooley. Thank you for opening a worthy discussion.

One thing I caught in the piece is that the woman with the duck head has no legs or feet. She has grown out of the man's back. Now, I suppose the artist could just have forgotten to put them in the painting.

But, if her intention was to grow the duck headed woman out of the man's back that puts a lot of meaning into the Rittenhouse incident. If he saw the potential in others of growing half a person with a duck's head out of a person's back, why could not the person grow fangs or claws that kill others. Those who could grow fangs and claws need to be taken out and that's what Mr. Rittenhouse did.


Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

I think it's very simple. If it's not glorifying Jesus, then it's not art. There is no clear Biblical message in that painting. Therefore, it is not art.

A more accurate interpretation of the slave trade would be a painting of thousands of sinful Nigro souls tumbling over a cliff into the fires below, but a glorious White Man reaches out and catches one of them, and he has a Bible in his other hand. A ray of sunshine arcs across the canvas to emphasize this scene and contrast the ugly darkness surrounding them. It's a lot more true (in a metaphorical sense) than a troop of bestial jigs passing around drugs inside a lighthouse.

absolute inability to understand what was happening.

See, now if one of us described the sheer, utter ignorance of the African race in such terms, they'd call us racist.


"No room for them in the inn" (Luke 2:7)?
Not if they'd come to the Blood of Christ Motel!
