Gonzo Arabia

What happens when a pioneering group of Saudi artists come to Aspen, Colorado, playground of the rich and famous, once a bastion of free thought, the long lost home of the Freak Power movement in the Rockies, for a meeting of minds? At the confluence of art, journalism, and inter- national affairs, stands the work of Hunter S. Thompson, inventor of Gonzo journalism and one of the great American political commentators of the 20th Century. We bring his work and its contribution to the history of counterculture movements into conversation with leading artists from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
