Dark Progressivism

Dark Progressivism, film screening,
Thursday, October 26, 2017, 5:30 p.m.
101 Thompson Hall, Kansas State University

Director/producer Rodrigo Ribera d’Ebre will present his documentary Dark Progressivism, which tells the story of how Los Angeles art forms–graffiti, street art, tattoo art–evolved from the streets and the social conditions of the city. The film addresses the influence of street gangs on these arts and introduces some of the artists who work in this medium. Rodrigo Ribera d’Ebre also wrote Urban Politics: The Political Culture of Sur 13 Gangs and will offer copies of his book for purchase after the screening.
