From the organizer

with Emily Hage, John Law, Winston Smith, Kal Spelletich, and V. Vale, moderated by Peter Maravelis (City Lights) Dada's influence upon the 20th century avante-garde has been immeasurable. It's political and aesthetic stance, as well as its confrontational approach to the art world and bourgeois sensibilities, has spread widely amongst artists, musicians, writers, poets, and performers. From the Beat Generation to Punk and beyond, Dada's "bastard children" are with us to this day.  Five voices that are firmly embedded in the theory, history, and practice of the avante garde will explore the artistic movements that followed Dada into the 21st century.
