Warhol in Retrospect

Few things bleed post-modernism more profusely than the films of Andy Warhol. The prolific artist shot more than sixty stories from 1963 to 1968, among them Sleep, which shows a man sleeping for eight hours, and Blowjob, 35 minutes of fellatio footage. And although Chelsea Girls was certainly his most cutting-edge film, it's the Warhol-produced sex, drugs and rock-and-roll trio of Flesh, Trash and Heat that remains the most accessible today. Catch a Warhol retrospective and two films from the trilogy during An Evening of Art Cinema, tonight at 6 p.m. at Full Spectrum Gallery, 1023 1/2 Main Street in Longmont. Admission is $6. Call 303-651-1511 or visit www.fullspectrumgallery.net for more information.
