Whitening Toothpaste

Nora Howell performs, 'Whitening' at American University in January 2013. Building on the popularity of whitening toothpaste and other oral products, Howell uses the toothpaste and brush as a metaphor to initiate a conversation about whitening as a social construct, its role in the art community, and public space.


Special thanks to Sarah Edelsburg for her help and participation in this performance.
