Join us for a screening of Dennis Hopper’s  Easy Rider, and speak with Mark Rozzo, author of Everybody Thought We Were Crazy (Harper Collins, 2022), a book that chronicles Hopper’s and Brooke Hayward’s art-collecting exploits in 1960s Hollywood.

Vogue Magazine describes the book as “a rare thing: a thrilling read that brings us inside a scandalously under-reported time and place.” Town and Country describes it as “beautifully written and endlessly fascinating,” while Publisher’s Weekly calls it a “scintillating…luminous debut.”

Mark Rozzo is also a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, who has written for the Los Angeles Times, the New Yorker , the New York Times , Esquire , Vogue , the Wall Street Journal , the Oxford American , the Washington Post , and many others.

Join award-winning authors Marwa Helal and Roger Reeves for an immersive poetry reading presented by SCAD MOA’s Evans Center for African American Studies. In this latest installment of the Evans Center’s literary series  (re)Phrase , Helal and Reeves engage modes of expressions that augment themes — such as racial violence, exile, colonization, and the “ante-body” — explored in current exhibitions.

Helal’s poetics of unrest trace the psychological impacts of migration and complexities of trauma that manifest as autoimmune disease, connecting with motifs in Hayv Kahraman’s exhibition  The Touch of Otherness .

Probing the apocalypses and raptures of humanity, Reeves urgently addresses crises of racial violence and climate change. These articulations issue a call and response with Barthélémy Toguo’s exhibition  Urban Requiem .

SCAD Museum of Art 601 Turner Blvd. Savannah ,  Georgia

This event is free and open the public. To RSVP, email Joël Díaz at  [email protected] .

About the authors Born in Al Mansurah, Egypt, Marwa Helal is the author of  Ante body  (Nightboat Books, 2022);  Invasive species  (Nightboat Books, 2019); and the chapbook  I AM MADE TO LEAVE I AM MADE TO RETURN  (No, Dear, 2017). She received a 2021 Whiting Award and has been honored with fellowships from the Jerome Foundation, NYFA/NYSCA, Poets House, and Cave Canem, among others.

Based in Austin, Texas, Roger Reeves is the author of  King Me  and the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, a Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation, and a 2015 Whiting Award, among other honors.
