OTHER CINEMA @ Artists' Television Access

San Francisco, CA 94110
Event Type: Speaker
On Saturday, April 6, ATA Gallery’s flagship screening series, Other Cinema, celebrates the second in our Secret Agents suite. LA Weekly critic Doug Harvey zooms in with a book-launch—in fact a party—to celebrate his anthology of sublimely ridiculous rants and paranoid analyses, 'patacritical Interrogation Techniques Anthology, Volume 3.

His crackpot-genius 'pITA3 compendium gleefully crosses conspiracy theory with avant-garde literature. Doug’s readings address absurd art pranks and mistranslations: Jean Averty’s Ubu Roi, Turkish Star Wars, Benny Lava’s mis-subtitled music videos, a Scientology workprint (!), and Craig Baldwin’s Tribulation 99 (16mm excerpt).

PLUS an inquiry into the “Rock Books” of über-fabulist Richard Shaver, detailing the Alphabet of the Ancients. Free beer.
