National Galleries Scotland, the National Gallery, London, and the Heritage Lottery Fund have commissioned a video in which white people are disparaged as “inbred spawn soon to die out” for an exhibition on ‘Male Gaze’.
The piece shows Liberia-born vocalist Alloysious Massaquoi, of the Mercury Prize-winning Young Fathers, strip half-naked in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and shuffle through it in his bare feet, shadow boxing and making angry, thrusting gestures towards the portraits.

The painting above, by Philip James de Loutherbourg, depicts Lieutenant-General Sir Ralph Abercromby at the Battle of Alexandria in 1801.
Mortally wounded by a musket-ball in the thigh, 66-year-old Sir Ralph remained on the field until he saw Napoleon’s forces had been put to flight, ending France’s ambitions of exerting dominion over Egypt and the Near East.
