Art of the Ridiculous: Doug Harvey's 'patacritical Interrogation Techniques

Location Details:
OTHER CINEMA @ Artists' Television Access
992 Valencia Street
San Francisco, CA 94110

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.
