11 am–12 pm: Mark Leckey, Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999), 15 min. on loop
Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore strings together altered video footage from dance clubs with an amalgamation of sounds to reveal the poignant socio-economic aspirations of counterculture nightlife.

John Bock’s Dandy is a surrealistic drama about a fictional nineteenth-century inventor’s relationships with his servant and his own tortured genius.
1 pm: Ryan Trecartin, I-Be Area (2007), 128 min.
I-Be Area is a feature-length promenade through a hallucinogenic world where the artist plays an array of characters exploring their personalities—as they or others perceive them—to comment on the vagaries of contemporary culture.
3:15–4 pm: Camille Henrot, Grosse Fatigue (2013), 13 min. on loop
Camille Henrot ambitiously sets out to tell the story of the creation of the universe, using images of diverse natural and anthropological objects culled from the collection of the Smithsonian Institution.
