Evening Flix

To accompany the Adam Art Gallery’s new exhibition Beautiful Creatures, there will soon be a number of film evenings co-presented by VBC 88.3FM and your very own Salient. Evening Flix comprises a series of movies examining the lives, works and worlds of various artists. Here’s a quick guide to what’s being shown.

Caravaggio – Whilst it charts the works and life of the famous painter, Caravaggio goes one step further by adopting the artist’s unique aesthetic in order to play with form and image.

Jack Smith and the Destruction of Atlantis – Not merely a portrait of an influential artist and filmmaker, but also an exploration of the underground New York scene that spawned a number of prominent artists throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable and Ciao! Manhattan – Looking at the cinematic work of Andy Warhol and the 60s artistic scene, this evening is basically a hipster’s mecca.

Shut Up and Play the Hits – Rousing, evocative footage of LCD Soundsystem’s final concert is interspersed with rather more dull segments featuring James Murphy staring at various objects for extended periods of time. Essential viewing for fans, but don’t expect to be enlightened.

All films will be shown at 6 pm in the Memorial Theatre, Student Union Building. Tickets are $5 (an absolute bargain) and include the cost of refreshments offered in the Adam Art Gallery between 5 and 6.
