    The Renaissance Society
    “Pierre Huyghe: Re/Extended”
    Sunday, March 12, through Sunday,
    April 23

    One of France’s 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 Lumet’s 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. http://www.renaissancesociety.org. Free.
