Friday 11/8 L.A. Video Artist Stanya Kahn!

EMPTY YOURSELF OUT AND PUT ANYTHING YOU WANT IN THAT SPACE: Stanya Kahn (Los Angeles)

FRI. 11/8 artist in person

Stanya Kahn’s videos offer glimpses into alternate worlds populated by bizarre characters, mummified animals, natural forces, and primal impulses. Working primarily in video, with a practice that includes performance, writing, and photography, Kahn’s work inhabits a space between fiction and document, and stems from an extensive background in live performance. Tonight Kahn will show recent videos including Kathy, Arms Are Overrated and more.

POLYSEXUAL DELIRIUM: Jack Smith’s Flaming Creatures

(*co-sponsored by the U of A’s LGBT Institute.)
Reviled, rioted over and banned as pornographic even as it was recognized by many as an unprecedented visionary masterpiece, Jack Smith’s Flaming Creatures (1963), tonight shown in beautifully restored 16mm print, is one of the most important and influential underground movies ever released in America. In Flaming Creatures, entangle on the floor, and it’s difficult to distinguish one delirious being from another. Jack Smith is considered a visionary photographer, the founding father of performance art and a pioneer of transgressive queer cinema. In celebration of the film’s 50th anniversary and LGBT history month!!
