SUN, May 4, 2014

Whitney Museum Second Floor (Kaufman Astoria Studios Film and Video Gallery)

James Benning’s Easy Rider is a re-creation of Dennis Hopper’s 1969 classic film by the same name. For his 2012 film, Benning drove across the United States and re-filmed scenes in their original locations, raising questions about the legacy of 1960s counterculture in America’s landscape today. Easy Rider is screening as part of Biennial artist Julie Ault’s Afterlife: a constellation.
