“Classical Frieze is a film and selection of photographs from Eleanor Antin’s recent work (2000–2009) recreating the ancient world through the screen of 19th-century neo-classical painting. The installation of her work coincides with the current special exhibitionPompeii and the Roman Villa: Art and Culture around the Bay of Naples.”
Midnight movies are back! Though I never truly experienced them in their heyday (there is only so much John Waters and Rocky Horror one can take … plus I was like three years old) the tradition has been resurrected at the Art Theater off 4th street (retro row). Tonight is EL TOPO, an underground allegorical cult hit that combines a europeans view of a spaghetti western with surrealist eastern philosophy (I know … everything you could ask for right?!). I’m not entirely sure what to expect, but I saw Jodorowskys other film HOLY MOUNTAIN, which is understood to heavily inspire Matthew Barney.
