#808 – Film: Easy Rider

Thursday, August 20 at 7 p.m. in the Harris Community Auditorium. Free program.

Easy Rider is considered an iconic film of the 1960s counterculture and stars Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper (who also directed), and Jack Nicholson. Two bikers, in search of freedom, travel across America and experience intolerance. Released in 1969, a year of pivotal events, including the concert at Woodstock, the tragic assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, the Vietnam War escalation, and Nixon’s election. Easy Rider - with its documentary-style, improvised dialogue, and contemporary rock soundtrack – reflected the chaos of the late 60s. A hit with the era’s youth, the film reflected their search for liberation and their fears of the Establishment.

Film discussion led by Lisa Danker, an Assistant Professor who teaches in the University of Central Florida's Visual Arts and Design program. Danker produces, directs, and edits 16mm film and videos; she specializes in experimental non-fiction.

#813 – The Art of Misuse, Lecture by Evan Roth

Saturday, September 12 at 10:30 a.m. in the Harris Community Auditorium, Free with admission

Evan Roth will discuss his fascination with the misuse of seemingly rigid systems and the effect that philosophies from hacker communities can have when applied outside of computer screens. His work demonstrates how small shifts in representation can enable us to see our environment with new eyes and visualize transient moments in public space, online and in popular culture. Whether realized online, in the studio, in the city or at the airport, Roth questions the sacred nature of technology and experiments with showing it creative disrespect.
