The Rolling Stones Trilogy: An Inadvertent Opera in Three Acts, at Once will be up at the Waldorf Hotel's Hideaway two days early, running from 7PM to 10PM, in addition to its scheduled run every Sunday in April from noon to 6PM, before moving to the Helen Pitt Gallery in a more compact form, where it will run daily from April 26 to May 1st.

The installation is comprised of three films -- Godard's Sympathy for the Devil (1968), the Maysles and Zwerin's Gimme Shelter (1970) and Frank's Cocksucker Blues -- projected side-by-side. Laid before each projection is my written synopses of the film, as if it were an act in an opera. These synopses combine to form a new narrative.

In addition to the exhibition, Publication Studio Vancouver and I have produced a limited edition book based on everything said from the stage during the Rolling Stones' performance at Altamont. The publication is called Free Concert and will be available at the Helen Pitt Gallery.
