While we are in transition and continuing our search for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners!
This AltLib Popup Series will run through the summer, presenting roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges, while we search for a new space to ground our collective. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

Cult Animation Night: Savory Selections
December 6, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
If you blink your eyes rapidly enough the world begins to look like a weird flickering animation. This may cause permanent damage to your ORBICULARIS OCULI (eyelid muscle) or it may beef it up to a super-steroidal level that knocks your glasses off your face all the time. This is probably the best way to prepare your eyebrain for SAVORY SELECTIONS, the most breathtaking assemblage of contemporary “fucked-up style…and beyond” animation since Winsor McKay rode Gertie the Dinosaur into the Tron laser getting bitmapped and reconstituted as a GIF backpatch in a cybersquat in a boarded up GameStop at the mall. If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, you should have your ears pierced… with a katana blade, that continues on through your neck, because you’ve forgotten what ‘fun’ is. But seriously folks, this is a magical mixtape of experimental video and animation encompassing a huge array of contempo approaches, all killer and no filler, suitable for projection on any classroom wall, DIY basement during anal funk band, museum trustee boardroom’s descending ceiling-mounted screen, 50-foot-yacht sail, planetarium roof, or human stomach.
