Guest Curator Mark Toscano in Attendance!

Mike Henderson, acclaimed painter and legend of the Bay Area blues scene, is far too little known for his remarkable body of 16mm film work, which includes more than two dozen films from the 1960s to the 1980s.  They are radically inventive, often hilariously funny, and very rarely shown. Reflecting an unusual synthesis of his music and painting backgrounds, the films span audiovisual compositional experiments, absurdist musings on creativity, and blues-driven performative pieces about Black identity, all rendered in a powerful and unadorned DIY directness. One Night Only!
