Join us for a special screening of Raymond Pettibon’s 1989 film, Sir Drone, selected by Kim Gordon. Described by Gordon as “epic”, Sir Drone follows teenagers from the industrial part of Los Angeles as they try to form a punk band in Hollywood. The film features artist Mike Kelley, bassist Matt Watt, and even a character named “Goo”. Shot in two days on home-video equipment with dialogue read off cue cards, Sir Drone is part of a series of feature-length, low-tech video narratives that Pettibon made in the late 1980s focused on West Coast American radical subjects of the 1960s and 1970s. The screening will feature a personal video introduction from Kim Gordon. Registration is required.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Kim Gordon: Lo-Fi Glamour.

  • Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
