Steve Seid—a former curator at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive—led BAMPFA’s recent restoration of LUMINOUS PROCURESS (1971), and will co-present the film at Redcat with Dirty Looks and Bradford Nordeen.*

This San Francisco Satyricon (and the film debut of The Cockettes), is “a lavishly appointed queer underground epic,” and the only feature film directed by the late, great Dalí protégé Steven Arnold.**

KEMBRA PFAHLER IN PERFORMANCE

Between 11 and midnight on June 24, the closing hour of WARHOL ICON, Kembra Pfahler and two comrades took the stage at The Broad’s Oculus Hall for a slashing, inimitable set of punk rock, performance art, and deadpan comedy.

Dirty Looks founder Bradford Nordeen guest-curated WARHOL ICON. He is the author of the upcoming Analog Tendencies: Queer Subversion Before the Digital Age.
