Happy Baby is a movie based on the novel of the same name by Stephen Elliott, declared, by the New York Times, as “Surely the most beautiful novel ever written about S&M, juvenile detention centers, and drugs.” Happy Baby is the story of Theo, once an orphan in the Detroit foster care system now a grown man living in California. He returns to Detroit to reconnect with the love of his life. Originally set in Chicago, you can read a chapter from the book here.

05 – Special Presentation – A. Head B. Body – Dir. Jim Fields — This week we have a very special film presentation. Directed by my good friend Jim Fields (End of the Century, Time Online) – The film is about the late Dr. White, a neurosurgeon… who did a head transplant. Yes. Took the head of an ape, cut it off, and stitched it onto the body of another ape. Successfully. And its all here… All the gory details. The film was actually produced a few years back. But due to the extreme nature of some of the visuals it didn’t get much exposure at first. But the brave have certainly made it something of a docu-cult classic. We are honored to be able to have it as a special entry in the Midnight Archive. Jim can be found twiddling his thumbs at the Time Magazine offices weekly and drinking heavily after hours. For more on his work visit jimfields.tv.
Music by The Residents.

If you missed the show last weekend or just need a healthy dose of seconds, come on out and join us!
ABOUT THE SHOW:
The Architecture of Devotion is a large scale group art, music and performance event hosted by the Gowanus Ballroom.
The exhibition transforms the cathedral-like Gowanus Ballroom, a nineteenth century steel mill and current home of Serrett Metalworks, to interrogate various representations of the sacred and profane.
Works including stained glass, paintings embellished with gilt adornment, modern reinventions of medieval retables, a cabinet of curiosities, and an enchanted grotto form an installation that explores themes of spirituality, mysticism and religion. Revisiting historic interpretations of divine presence through a contemporary lens allows artist and audience to reconsider what might at first glance appear mundane.
THE MOVIE LIBRARIANS FILM SCREENING WITH A.G. GRAHAM
DUMBO ARTS CENTER
JULY 1 ZARDOZ, dir. John Boorman. 1974
– Institute of Museum and Library Services
Dumbo Arts Center’s current exhibition is (The Missing Library). This summer, artist Annie Shaw has invited five artists (Jen Kennedy & Liz Linden, Marie Lorenz, Michelle Rosenberg and Angie Waller), an architect (Lori Brown) and two librarians (A.G. Graham and web-specialist Nate Hill) to turn DAC into a civic, non-commercial public space in the form of the Dumbo neighborhood’s first library. The project encourages contemplation on how libraries’ function, physical space, and role within communities is changing as the content libraries have traditionally housed migrates to a digital form.
PABLO MALAURIE. Pablo Malaurie hails from Buenos Aires playing original folklore on banjo and ukelele, songs that are sweet, timeless and oddly global. Soaring melodies evoke geisha girls and Buddy Holly in equal parts. He scored a Romanian film that premiered at this year’s Cannes, Loverboy, and released El Festival Del Beso in Japan. Pablo’s voice can pierce through you in a painful tremelo and then soothe your broken heart with a pleasing, unexpected harmony. KCRW’s Jose Galvan says, “Malaurie combines both Japanese and South American folk rhythms with a minimalist approach. Some songs recreate traditional Japanese melodies simply using a mandolin banjo and a haunting falsetto. Others integrate rhythms more akin to indigenous music of the Andes. Add to that introspective lyrics and his affected Argentine accent and you’ve got the perfect soundtrack for a road trip in the Japanese countryside a la Motorcycle Diaries.”
Accordionist Rob Curto’s band plays Northeastern Brazil’s traditional “forró pé de serra” with a style born out of New York City’s diverse and dynamic musical culture. Forró is the accordion-based party music of the sertão, the dry interior of the Brazilian Northeast. Accordion master Rob Curto leads this ensemble which combines the classic brazilian Northeast forros of Luis Gonzagua and Jackson do Pandeiro with original compositions and improvisation rolled into an amazing dance party

FREIGHT AND VOLUME
June 23 – July 30, 2011The life of an artist can be a nomadic one, for any number of reasons, amongst them financial, emotional and spiritual. In many instances, artists find more support and camaraderie in large urban areas, and for quite a few all roads eventually lead to New York (or London or Berlin). The four artists comprising “Migration”, the summer show opening June 23rd at Freight+Volume, are no exception.
Flux Factory is proud to present Specter Flux , an interactive environment and performance by artist-in-residence Peter Edwards, aka casperelectronics. The installation consists of three suspended orbs that glow at varying hues according to the sounds of its surroundings, including the ambient noise of the space and those made by the viewer. Its interior mechanism – a hybrid circuit using both digital and analogue electronics – transforms sound into an evolving display of multicolored lights. The performative element includes a constructed pyramid centered around a complex sound and light synthesizer that the artist plays. Viewers are invited to interact with the machine throughout the show.
This day-long event explores the practical, philosophical, and playful applications of the term “hacking.” Presentations and workshops will cover topics such as circuit bending, culture jamming, dumpster diving, email encryption, and the repurposing of waste items into useful tools. The symposium is geared towards providing visitors with foundational information in order to become hackers themselves. Hackposiumis part of Flux Factory’s Summer School program and is curated by Jaime Iglehart via New Age Beverages, in collaboration with Pete Edwards of Casper Electronics.
Demos of hacked objects and freegan snacks start at 4pm.
Talks and presentations start at 6 pm, and are followed by musical performances.

“A highly stylized adaptation of Hamlet performed in Korean, Hamyul feels like a traditional drama that could have been performed in the ancient Korean court.” – nytheatre.comThursday – Saturday at 7:30pm
Sunday at 2:30pm
Hamyul/Hamlet is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. The play is set in one of the ancient dynasties in Korea. The original Prince Hamyul, a Korean adaptation of Hamlet by William Shakespeare was presented to Western audiences in the United States and Europe in 1977. Adapted and directed by Minsoo Ahn, Prince Hamyul was the first Korean theatrical production ever performed outside Korea, making an indelible mark on the history of Korean theater thanks to the late Ellen Stewart at La MaMa.
