Oscar Boyson’s lecture, titled, Learn the rules, then re-write your own alphabet, will take the audience on a tour of notable triumphs of art and ingenuity over commerce and industry in recent history, and in his personal career as a producer and director.

Boyson’s recent directorial work includes Rammellzee: It’s Not Who But What (2018), a documentary about legendary New York artist Rammellzee, who Sotheby’s described as a “Shape-shifting multimedia artist…and a hip-hop pioneer who left behind an astonishingly varied and influential body of work.” Boyson has also worked as a producer on films such as Good Time (2017), Heaven Knows What (2014), Mistress America (2015) and Frances Ha (2012) and directed dozens of music videos, commercials, short films and online videos.

Making stuff to impress your peers and participating in a community that way, that’s where culture starts to add real value.
