Get Mad at Sin!
Nationally recognized performer Andrew Dinwiddie will re-enact a sermon from Preacher Jimmy Swaggert. The performance, based on a now out-of-print-vinyl recording of Swaggert's 1971 speech in Arkansas, ironically attacks popular culture, especially show business, even though Swaggert is an iconic performer himself and is the cousin of rocker Jerry Lee Lewis. While Dinwiddie breathes new life into Swaggert's words, they inevitably mean something different to us then they would have originally 40 years ago.
Artists Kelly Eginton and Joe Yorty will present a sound installation in which they simultaneously play multiple vinyl records of Jimmy Swaggert's sermons and gospels. The artists will engage in impromptu sound distortion by playing records backwards or introducing foreign materials onto the records.
