Pierre Huyghe: Re/Extended
Sunday, March 12, through Sunday,
One of Frances leading young talents in the field of video, Pierre Huyghe
exposes the subtle and sometimes not so subtle ways in which culture and
entertainment are handled as material substances subject to industrial
regulation. Huyghe bases Re/Extended on Sydney Lumets award-winning film
starring Al Pacino, Dog Day Afternoon. He brings archival news footage of
the actual robbery on which the film is based together with excerpts from the
film and footage of John Wojtowicz (pictured left), whom Pacino portrayed in the
film. With this collaboration of film footage, Huyghe examines the intersections
between film, filmic reality, reality as memory, and reality as constructed by
the media. Tuesday-Friday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturday-Sunday: noon-5 p.m. Cobb
Hall, Room 418, 5811 S. Ellis Ave. 702-8670.
