 Select Media Festival 8 • Super Bad Ass • Nov 19 - Nov 22, 2009
[ Festival Website ] [ Photo documentation]

From the SMF8 website:

Select Media Festival 8 opens November 19th and runs through November 22nd at the experimental cultural center, the Co-Prosperity Sphere, and other venues across the city. The eighth annual festival will feature video programs, a group exhibition, performances and presentations in conjunction with live music and action. This year we are keeping the festival short and sweet. We have no filler, no excuses and no doubts.

In our group show, Super Bad Ass, we will exhibit and present the work by artists that continue to inspie and baffle us with their work ethic, craft and aesthetic sensibilities.
