THE GREAT DEPRESSION by Bill Daniel opening reception

Filmmaker, photographer, and artist, Bill Daniel presents “The Great Depression”.
Culminated from over twenty-years of work and cross-country travels, “The Great Depression” is a mixed media gallery show that has evolved from the on-going Sunset Scavenger project. The gallery will be jammed with a mix of Bill’s photography – from murals to snapshots, a mash-up wall of found things + friends’ work, a video projected onto signal flags, and some stuff that he’s been dragging around from state to state, waiting for a place to stick it up.

ALSO on SATURDAY April 4th 7:00pm @ Space 1026
Join Bill for a special screening of his epic and beautiful documentary, “Who Is Bozo Texino?” The black and white film shot in 16mm and Super8mm over 16-years chronicles the search for the source of a ubiquitous and mythic rail graffiti– a simple sketch of a character with an infinity-shaped hat and the scrawled moniker, “Bozo Texino”– a drawing seen on railcars for over 80 years. Daniel’s gritty film uncovers a secret society and it’s underground universe of hobo and railworker graffiti, and includes interviews with legendary boxcar artists.

The night will also include musical performances by The Extraordinaires and Sweatheart.
