Avant-Garde Gutter

Avant Cinema 2.5: No Drinks Allowed In Screening Room:
Thursday, January 15 @ 7 PM
Austin Studios Screening Room
(1901 E 51st Street)
$4 for AFS Members & Students with ID / $6 for Non-members
New media artists Ben Coonley and Kevin Bewersdorf continue AFS's Avant Cinema series with this two-man show of their deceptively simple and richly subversive works, executed with a wide array of digital tools. This evening of PowerPoint lectures, slide-shows, short videos, Internet curiosities and other sludge from the avant-gutter will also feature a special contest, with a tasty beverage as the main prize (not to be consumed in the screening room).
