    Urban Encounters: SightLine is the second curatorial effort led by the Denver Theatre District (DTD) that takes the best in video, animation and motion-based art directly to the public, presented on a massive, state-of-the-art LED screen prominently located in downtown Denver, Colorado. 2011's "Frame of Mind" showcased 39 short-format works exclusively from Colorado artists as one of the focal points of city-sponsored Create Denver's "Local Network," an evening of creative new media, presented to an enthusiastic audience numbering in the thousands. The goal of Urban Encounters is to expand the presentation to become international in scope, with new and existing works by pioneers in motion-based art from around the world, intersecting with recent works by some of the best local contemporary artists. SightLine takes place on Friday, May 11th at 8pm, as one of the focal programs occurring that evening during Create Denver's "Urban Encounters," a showcase of the leading edge of creativity and art for the Denver community. Other programs that evening taking place both on and off the LED screen are "SideShop' interactive window shopping from 6-7pm, "KacheOut" - interactive gaming from 7-8pm and again from 9-10pm, and "InStereo" interactive Karaoke with reactive visuals from 8-10pm on the 16th and Champa LED. Urban Encounters - SightLine was curated by Plus Gallery owner Ivar Zeile and Ryan Pattie, with assistance from Phillipe Moore. Colorado artists who will be featuring new works specifically for the event include Milton Croissant III, Joel Swanson, Phillipe Faulkner, Quintin Gonzalez and the duo of Donald Fodness / Alvin Gregorio. National and international artists who will be featuring new or recent works include Alex McLeod, Jonathan Monaghan, Evan Mann, Karolina Sobecka, JK Keller, Eric Dyer, Andreas Nicolas Fischer, Reynold Reynolds, Racecar, Tim Wheatley, Sabrina Ratte, Emilio Gomariz, Kim Pimmel and Jeremy Bailey. A stellar lineup that will set the sky and mind ablaze that night! Promo Video designer, filmed and edited by Ryan Pattie

      Song: Paki - Il Segno Del Tuo Amore REMAINS IN THE END TIMES YOSHI SODEOKA ROSA MENKMAN DANIEL MENCHE JK KELLER CRISTOPHER CICHOCKI December 2, 2011 — January 5, 2012 The Popular Workshop Gallery and Table of Contents are proud to present, REMAINS IN THE END TIMES, a group exhibition of experimental video, audio, sculpture, and prints curated by Jesse Lee Stout. Remains in the End Times, held in a city notorious for devastating earthquakes and the pioneering of early psychedelia, presents a paradigm of apocalyptic hallucinations and "tech-gnosis" contrasting modernity with ruination. The show title, partially derived from Slavoj Žižek's 2010 opus Living in the End Times, expands the proposition that there is no pending big bang, no End of Days — on the contrary, society is already immersed in this so-called Doomsday. As a result, a slow transformation has drifted us into a world where smog-ridden skies became the most beautiful sunsets imaginable and the white noise of a television lulls us to sleep at night. Utilizing disposable technology, deteriorated media, and derelict landscapes as a conceptual foundation, these artists have transformed ruination into mature experiential works that unearth a new psychedelia. Rather than illustrating drug experiences, as in the case of hypnotic works of the 1960s, these works mesmerize and overwhelm the senses by way of reshaping the entropy and chaos of techno-inundated modern life — both helping us escape our reality while firmly planting ourselves in it.
