Get Mad at Sin!
Nationally recognized performer Andrew Dinwiddie will re-enact a sermon from Preacher Jimmy Swaggart. The performance, based on a now out-of-print-vinyl recording of Swaggart’s 1971 speech in Arkansas, ironically attacks popular culture, especially show business, even though Swaggart is an iconic performer himself and is the cousin of rocker Jerry Lee Lewis. While Dinwiddie breathes new life into Swaggart’s words, they inevitably mean something different to us then they would have originally 40 years ago.
It’s getting darker…
Artists Kelly Eginton and Joe Yorty will present a sound installation in which several Jimmy Swaggart records will play throughout the museum for the duration of the evening. The artists will also engage in impromptu sound mixing by playing several records simultaneously in proximity to one another.
