November 2 (+3) Film, Asethetics, Protest

Tonight, the PSU Monday night lecture series presents members of the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest collective. The journal, now in issue 6, presents a wide range of writing on political protest, social practice projects and extending artist engagement in culture. As related by the speaker, they take an anarchist approach to protest globalization as artists, wraping it in a blanket Situationist theory and ultra academic language. Not effective enough for me. They are also publishers of related works such as "An Atlas of Radical Cartography", a comic "Fashion 2012", "Public Phenomena by Temporary Services", and "Call to Farms!" Talk in the Shattuck Hall Annex out front, 1914 SW Park Avenue, at the corner of SW Broadway and Hall on the PSU campus. 7:30PM Free

Meanwhile tonight and tomorrow the Cinema Project presents films by Stephen Connolly, British filmmaker. Connolly makes impressionistic films which incorporate documentary footage. You can see the work for yourself. Presented by the Cinema Project, with the artist in attendance. At the Cinema Project space 11 NW 13th Ave, top floor. Elevator access is provided, please come to the door to request. Leave some extra time to find it. 7:30PM $6 (cash/check)
