«What would my Nan think of the martin creed scrumpled paper at the hauser n wirth frieze stand worth up to $70,000?»

The White Pube is a collaboration between Gabrielle de la Puente and Zarina Muhammad through which they publish art criticism, sometimes curate, and always provide a lot of entertaining, insightful, and necessary commentary on The Art World.

'Embodied criticism' is the means through which this duo are attempting to rattle the outdated structures that keep contemporary art exclusive and inaccessible; allowing their personal experiences, emotions, non-verbal, 'subjective' reactions to centre in their responses.

They have a prolific following online, producing content on their website (http://thewhitepube.co.uk), YouTube, and Podcasts on Soundcloud. (If you don't follow them on Twitter as well, you're missing out on some sizzling Hot Takes.)

«I don’t hate galleries, my problem is that I think galleries hate me. I’m not going to buy the work. I’m not going to write an article about it in Time Out (or Art Review haha). I’m just going to look at it. And that should be enough, but I don’t think it is.»

The Blake Society — Downing's arts and humanities society — invites de la Puente and Muhammad for an In Conversation event, allowing for questions from the committee, the audience, and the guests themselves.

Entry is free to all. Drinks will be provided throughout the event. Following the talk, the committee and their guests will be attending Formal Hall, should any guests wish to join us, please do get in touch with Eli Hayes ([email protected]).

This is set to be a popular and highly enjoyable event, so make sure you get here on time to get a seat!
