DESCRIPTION

L@TE: Friday Nights - Hauntology (Conversation to Precede Performance)

6:00 Conversation: Hauntology: An Interdisciplinary Intro

David Brazil will discuss “hauntings” in literary texts as figures by which we might think through the question of our own responsibilities to the dead. Stanford University professor of English Terry Castle will consider collecting, and the psychic and intellectual urges that lie behind it, in the light of hauntology. Artist and web designer Josh On will address some of the specters of socialism haunting American politics and culture today. Then, artist and musician Scott Hewicker, co-curator of the exhibition, will introduce the program in conjunction with L@TE.

7:30 Hauntology

Friday, October 29, 7:30 p.m. (Doors 5 p.m., DJ 6:30 p.m.)

Programmed by Scott Hewicker

An evening of hauntological sounds, spirited discussions, and phantasmagorical projections will inhabit Gallery B. The spectral sounds of Portland-based Indignant Senility, and Bay-area based artists Barn Owl and Jim Haynes will provide a haunting sonic backdrop for multiple film, slide, and video projections, many from the PFA Collection, plus a ghostly procession and other tricks and treats. Ghost costumes encouraged! This event is programmed in conjunction with the exhibition Hauntology and is preceded by a public program at 6 p.m.

Galleries Open Until 9 p.m.
