Screening: Chip Lord’s Une Ville de l’Avenir and Bruce Tomb’s (de)Appropriation Project

Saturday, Oct 01
9:00 pm

Free to attend

An evening of video works by the LST artists Chip Lord and Bruce Tomb.

Chip Lord’s Une Ville de l’Avenir (2011, 13:00) uses the lens of Godard’s Alphaville (1965, 99:00) to look at the City of the Future that we live in today. Set in the modernist Paris neighborhood of La Defense, the video features a bare-bones narrative in which Alphaville is revisited as an airplane movie.

Bruce Tomb’s (de)Appropriation Project (2006, 2:53) provides continuing documentation of graffiti and collage on a wall fronting the jail cells of the former Mission Police Station at 1240 Valencia Street in San Francisco.
