Ninja Scroll

Fri., Aug. 23, 11:55 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 24, 11:55 p.m.
Landmark Tivoli Theatre 6350 Delmar Blvd., University City Delmar/ The Loop

,
Ninja Scroll, the wild and wooly all-action anime that hit American screens in 1995, helped popularize the format for adults. The keys to its success are its twisty-turny plot, the vehemence of its violence and the brief interludes of a sexual nature. At the center of the story is wandering ninja Jubei Kibagami, a lone swordsman who becomes entangled in the hunt for a lost (or stolen) shipment of gold that could tip the balance of government power. Trying to keep the gold are the Eight Devils of Kimon, a team of ninjas with supernatural powers and a mean streak a mile wide. Jubei must fight his way through all eight of them to carry out his mission, but that's easier said than done. The Reel Late film series presents Ninja Scroll at 11:55 p.m. Friday and Saturday (August 23 and 24) at the Landmark Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard; www.landmarktheatres.com). Tickets are $8. 314-727-7271

Diana Zeng: Outside In

Mondays-Fridays, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 1
Bonsack Gallery 755 S. Price Road, Ladue Ladue

,
The Bonsack Gallery presents "Outside In," a solo exhibition by Diana Zeng that explores how we welcome influences from the outside world and examines how the foreign becomes familiar, from nature to unknown cultures. The show includes vibrant, large-scale oil paintings; abstract works on paper; and a gathering space centered around a re-imagined fire pit infused with personal cultural motifs of Zeng’s interracial family. Unifying her lived experiences between the American Midwest and her ancestral home in China, Zeng confronts innate reactions toward the Other, not as stranger, but as kin. To preview her work, visit dianazeng.com. 314-993-4040

Lecture: Ai Weiwei: Between Mao and Warhol

Wed., Oct. 23, 6:30 p.m.

, ,
In this lecture, John J. Curley, associate professor of modern and contemporary art at Wake Forest University, will discuss the hybridity of Ai Weiwei’s artistic practice.

Ai’s practice thus transforms Duchamp’s and Warhol’s postures of critical ambiguity into clear political statements, allowing his works to be read as both works of contemporary art and social activism. Free and open to the public. 314-935-5490
