PERFORMANCE VIDEO AND COLORED GLOVES!

Gary Setzer & Tommy Becker in person

Interdisciplinary artist, Gary Setzer opens his archives and shares a selection of single-channel videos reaching back to the turn of the century. Equal parts Sesame Street and process-oriented art, Setzer playfully blurs the distinction between these two languages—the aggressively tamed palette of an audience-friendly educational experience and the less accessible lineage of the avant-garde. For Tommy Becker, this evening’s show will explore and celebrate the dynamics of the high school landscape and complexities of relationships. Within these two themes, the role of color in art history, the vitality of lemons as educational inquiry and the ebb and flow in our interpersonal lives will be introduced through PowerPoint and celebrated in song.

SK8 OR DIE VIDEOS + Paranoid Park

Jocko Weiland presents a selection of rad skateboarding videos with a live improv-accompaniment by shredder JLownsbury & friends. Tonight’s second act is Gus Van Sant’s underappreciated skater feature, Paranoid Park.

One of the most darkly intense films of Gus Van Sant’s fascinating career.
