A film screening and benefit event for The Moscow Project
Friday, December 3, 8 PM
Tickets $5-$15 sliding scale; No one turned away for lack of funds
Glimpse these American artists on the big screen of Moscow when it was giddy with the optimism of glasnost and perestroika. The LAB will screen and celebrate this film-in-progress by David Drewry -- part documentary, director's cut, behind-the-scenes footage, and autobiographical reflection of this major American arts festival in Moscow and Leningrad in the Summer of 1990. Featuring a few who survived our glorious expedition to the East, expect an evening of impromptu dance, spoken word, and out-of-the-can sounds by Scott MacLeod, John Rieger and ex-Contrabanders Kim Epifano, Keith Hennessy, and Julie Kane.
The Archive Project is a major effort to identify, catalogue, and preserve The LAB's 20-year history of exhibitions, performances, readings and screenings. Join us in this benefit to build a digital and physical archive of seminal images, music, sound, video and printed material by new and emerging artists from the Bay Area and around the world.
