Big thanks to Lilah and Alexis at Scope for inviting me to show 6 hours (!) of video on Saturday, March 7 from noon to 6pm.

It was a bit much to take on by myself, so Genesis P-Orridge kindly shared from her collection for the first program.

Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Anthony Balch, BREYER P-ORRIDGE, Scott Treleaven, Hermann Nitsch, Marie Losier, Sam Zimmerman and Derek Jarman. The screening will include a supplemental program of cut-up pieces by Nate Boyce, John Michael Bolig, Davy Force, Yoshi Sodeoka and Antoine Catala.

Program 2
