Q&A with Second Wave Artists following the Saturday evening screening

“‘I’m a driver,’ says Ryan Gosling in Drive, and he doesn’t need to say another word. With that simple utterance, Nicolas Winding Refn’s minimalist thriller defines its aesthetic—lean, efficient, and sharpened to the finest point. At a time when action films routinely pass off freneticness as excitement, Drive is a reminder of how powerful the genre can be when every shot and every line of dialogue has a purpose, deployed for maximum impact.” - Scott Tobais, A.V. Club

Join us after the Saturday evening screening for a discussion about the film with artists Ryan Perez and Kristofferson San Pablo from the exhibition SECOND WAVE: Aesthetics of the 80s in Today’s Contemporary Art.
