Full of genre-bending twists on pop culture and film history, Daddy Cool is the story of a boy, his father, and his therapist – but of course it’s not that simple.

Fri Apr 11th - Good Fridays: Films: Angel Beach (USA, 2001) 25 min., 16 mm color/silent, directed by Scott Stark. Anonymous 3D photographs of bikini -clad women from the early 1970s are compressed into two-dimensional cinematic space, triggering a visual dance and revealing a troubling and elegiac voyeurism.

Finished (USA, 1997) 75 min., 16 mm color, directed by William E. Jones.  A detective story and a love story, Finished is a film on contradictions: pornographic yet chaste, distances yet mesmerizing, reticent yet moving. $5.  6pm @ The Andy Warhol Museum. 117 Sandusky Street [Nortthside]. 412.237.8300 or www.warhol.org

 

Fri Apr 11th - Information Man: Closing reception. In an exhibition catalogue, American Pop Artist Ed Ruscha made the following statement: "It would be nice if sometime a man would come up to me and say 'Hello.

CMU School of Art graduate students Mario Marzan and Adam Davies have used this quote as the inspiration for the theme and title of Information Man. The exhibition, consisting of videos, installations and mixed media art, assembles a body of work by artists interested in the recording and representation of information. These artists speak poetically about numbers, draw meaning from data, and offer solutions to the challenge of living in the age of mass information. 7-9pm @ Future Tenant.  Liberty Ave [Downtown].
