Are you an artist with subversive tendencies? Looking for a way to use your artistic sensibilities to uncover government secrets and rearrange ecological landscapes? Your symposium has arrived. Aurora Picture Show and the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts are co-presenting You Are Here, a two-day performance/conference subtitled Contemporary Artists & Researchers Working with Mapping & Tactical Media. If that sounds crushingly boring, consider one presentation, Terminal Air, given by the Institute for Applied Autonomy. IAA will teach you how to utilize your right brain to track CIA planes used in the Extraordinary Rendition program. And then theres the Points of Disinterest in the Gulf Coast talk (come on, that sounds fun, right?). Todays performance, Future So Bright: Live by Matt McCormick features McCormick playing the sound track to his film Future So Bright, with footage shot at the Center for Land Use Interpretation; it starts at 9 p.m. Tomorrows conference is 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. 800 Aurora. For information and a full schedule of presentations, call 713-868-2101 or visit www.aurora-picture-show.com. Admission to Future So Bright is $6, but the conference is free.
Fri., Nov. 30, 9 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 1, 1-5 p.m., 2007
