DUMPSTER RACCOON

Dumpster Raccoon screens trashy cult classics accompanied by live performances. In a recent interview with NOW Magazine, curator Anthony Oliveira summed up the series: “Dumpster Raccoon is not just the name, it is my ethos,” says Oliveira. “It’s how I describe what I do when someone asks. I think my work as a writer or culture critic or whatever is that I compulsively forage through our culture trash to figure out what it is, how it works, why we discarded it, what it can teach us. Sharing pop culture has always been one of the main ways I express affection, and the series has grown out of that: ‘I love you; here’s some shiny garbage.’”
