CREAM is working with symbolic color, typically attributed to the status of “flesh.” Specifically, wherein corporeal traits are given to untreated, untextured, flat hues of beige. The designation of this exhibition to CREAM, simultaneously evokes ideas on hierarchy and whiteness (of one sort or another). Highlighting the instrumentalization of beige as a color that both represents banality and invokes particular bodies, the artist aims to interrogate the implicit racialization off-white hues invariably undergo.
