There is SO much going on right now in the arts and activism world of the Bluegrass. Tonight, the spotlight will be on my lambchops at the Lexington Arts League tonight as they open their newest exhibition:
Re:Play, curated by Lexington Film League, opens this evening at LAL's north side location in historic Loudoun House, projected video light dances on the walls of the Gothic architecture with 20 films by 16 local and national contemporary video artists in Re:Play, an exhibition curated by Lexington Film League.
Using found media as source material, many of the artists are working in the genre known as collage film. Collage digital media implements cuts of appropriated subculture films and commercial imagery, seaming new narratives atop different back stories from which the visuals came.
Join LAL for the opening at
Fifth Third Bank 4th Friday tonight!
Light appetizers and a cash bar
from DaRae & Friends Catering
and flowers by Nature's Splendor.
Also live music with Astor Place Riot.

A radical hybrid of spy, sci-fi, Western, and even horror genres, Craig Baldwin's Mock Up On Mu cobbles together a feature-length "collage-narrative" based on (mostly) true stories of California's post-War sub-cultures of rocket pioneers, alternative religions, and Beat lifestyles. Pulp-serial snippets, industrial-film imagery, and B- (and Z-) fiction clips are intercut with newly shot live-action material.
