On Saturday, May 18, ATA Gallery’s flagship programming initiative, OTHER CINEMA, presents Bill Brown, in person! Mr. Brown zooms in from North Carolina with a charming “how-to” volume, Action! The artist-author reads from this self-illustrated guide to film- and video-making and also from the latest issue of his beloved travel ‘zine, Dream Whip.

Mr. Brown then introduces an inspiring mid-career overview of his personal documentaries, headlined by the West Coast premiere of Memorial Land, a careful consideration of architectural sites honoring the 9/11 dead. ALSO: Chicago Corner, Confederation Park, Mountain State, and his recent Document, a laser-printer-to-16mm rendering of a redacted CIA text.

Q&A, toast and jam, and books available!
