With the 1865 publication of Lewis Carrol’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the phrase “down the rabbit hole” became shorthand for the experience of slipping into a bizarre, alternate reality. With his playful treatment of scale and material expectations, artist Tristin Lowe’s work evokes a sense of parallel world weirdness. Held in conjunction with Lowe's exhibition Black Holes & Rabbit Holes, this series of screenings invites revelatory disorientation with four films that open portals into strange wonderlands.

Join us on Wednesday, February 23 at 6 pm for a screening of Buster Keaton's Sherlock Jr. Following the screening, art and film critic Carrie Rickey will join Lowe in dialogue about the film and exhibition.

about the film

A kindly movie projectionist (Buster Keaton) longs to be a detective. When his fiancée (Kathryn McGuire) is robbed by a local thief (Ward Crane), the poor projectionist is framed for the crime. Using his amateur detective skills, the projectionist follows the thief to the train station—only to find himself locked in a train car. Disheartened, he returns to his movie theater, where he falls asleep and dreams that he is the great Sherlock Holmes.
