Art in the A-Changin' Times

Art in the A-Changin' Times

Bob Dylan fan or no, you will be entranced and entertained by the final talk in this year's Eden Artspeak series next Tuesday 14 March.

Singer/ songwriter/ artist/ beatnik bard/ spokesman for a 60s counterculture and voice of a generation... Dylan epitomises the way in which art can influence popular culture, as illustrated by his Nobel prize win for literature last year "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition".

Marry this iconic figure with a diehard fan, Professor Peter O'Connor, who also happens to be an eloquent narrator and lover of the "pedagogy of surprise". Add a couple of musicians and a bundle of Dylan lyrics and the result will be an evening unlike any other Eden Artspeak talk in the event's 20 year history!

Lecture Room J3, Epsom Campus, Auckland University, Gate 3 Epsom Ave.

7 to 9pm.

Proudly brought to you by The Eden Arts Trust
