Pencil This In: FLUX @ the Hammer Museum and Hanging with Abe
The quarterly FLUX Screening Series at the Hammer Museum takes place tonight from 7-11 pm. The night will debut the World Premiere of PSST! 3, a collaborative new film project featuring shorts by a worldwide network of designers, directors, animators, and composers. PSST! founder and curator Bran Dougherty-Johnson will be in attendance to present the films. The evening will also include the premiere of two N.A.S.A. videos from its highly-anticipated new release The Spirit of Apollo; "Gifted" featuring Kayne West, Santogold and Lykke Li; and "A Volta," directed by Logan in collaboration with The Date Farmers. Check the website for the full screening schedule. A courtyard after-party will follow the film screenings. Admission is FREE, but reservations are highly suggested. Seating is first come, first served and an RSVP does not guarantee seating. (So get there early!)
