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.’”


Anthony Oliveira is a writer, pop culture critic, and PhD living in Toronto. He can be found on Twitter at @meakoopa, where he tweets (incessantly) about the arts, politics, and LGBT culture, or on his podcast, The Devil’s Party, as he reads through Milton’s Paradise Lost and its demonic twists and turns.
