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

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.
