10/27/2014 — Canyon Cinema Salon, Seeing Something Always Hidden: A Program of Films Selected by Denah Johnston

Posted October 6th, 2014 in Announcements, Canyon Cinema Salon, News / Events

PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENING WILL BE HOSTED BY JOHN CARLSON!

Please join Canyon Cinema on the evening of October 27th, 2014  (PLEASE NOTE RESCHEDULED DATE!) for the first presentation in our Salon series of the Fall season. This month, our own Denah Johnston has curated “Seeing Something Always Hidden,” a program that investigates a number of artists whose work is conversant with the mainstream. These films, which borrow from, parody, and reform material legible to a mainstream audience, helped Johnston to leap into the experimental theoretically, practically, and abstractly.

The Canyon Cinema Salon is a FREE public event at New Nothing Cinema (16 Sherman Street in SOMA). Doors open at 7pm for a brief reception and doors close promptly at 7:30pm to begin the show.
