Bring on the Projectors 

Those great film curators at EXPLODED VIEW Gallery/Microcinema, 197 E. Toole Ave., host filmmaker Roger Beebe and his, "Films for One to Eight Projectors," Friday, Jan. 30, 7:30 p.m. Beebe is known for his multiple-projector performances. This month he's on the road on a four-month tour of several of his best-known projector performances (including the six-projector show-stopping space jam "Last Light of a Dying Star"), it also places those works in the context of a broader practice of appropriation of educational/industrial/mass cultural imagery. These works cover a range of topics from black athletes with Irish surnames ("Famous Irish Americans") and the secret logic of the book of Genesis ("Beginnings") to Las Vegas suicides ("Money Changes Everything") and companies jockeying to be at the start of the phone book ("AAAAA Motion Picture").
