1apr4:00 pm- 6:00 pmThe Godfather Speaks: An Audience with Alan AbelFaked/Out


Event Details

Faked/Out features a series of writing workshops, guest speakers, and film screenings that will contextualize fake news within a significant, cross-disciplinary tradition of fakeness and will create opportunities for visitors to alternately interrogate and experiment with the practice of faking it in their own lives.
Event Description: While it is condemnably lazy to quote Wikipedia articles, this one nails it: “Alan Abel is an American prankster, hoaxer, writer, mockumentary filmmaker, and jazz percussionist famous for several hoaxes that became media circuses.” One of our foremost masters of misinformation, Abel will join us to review the madcap methods used to perpetrate classic hoaxes such as SINA (The Society for Indecency to Naked Animals) and Omar The Beggar, along with his other brilliant subversions.
Access Information: The entrance to Recess is up four steps. During all events and public hours, you may request ramp access using the buzzer to the left of the door. The bathroom is all-gender and ADA approved with three grab bars. We will do our best to accommodate requests for ASL interpretation or captioning.
