What went down in your head?
Ohhhh, Miiiiisssssstahhh Croooowleeeeeey,
Did you talk to the dead?
Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t realize I was writing a post.
This Thursday night, the Hammer is presenting a free lecture called Do What Thou Wilt: Kenneth Anger on Aleister Crowley and the Occult. Apparently the avant-garde filmmaker once dabbled in Crowley’s Thelema religion, and many of his films actually reference the occult.
This event complements the Hammer’s Houseguest series, which invites artists to curate a show based on the diverse collections of the University of California, Los Angeles. This time around, LA-based artist Francesca Gabbiani gave it a whirl and wound up exploring sorcery and witchcraft.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a serious air-guitar solo to get back to.
Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Randy Rhoads!
