OTH: Stick ‘Em Up Exclusive Debut

You may have heard about Stick ‘Em Up. For those who haven’t, it’s a documentary about an inner city art form called wheatpasting, which is both profoundly provocative and profoundly misunderstood. Stick ‘Em Up features commentary showcasing the points of view of both street artists and local law enforcement officials.

It’s been talked about a lot, and now the date, time, and location for the movie’s much-anticipated debut have been set: Thursday, April 7, 7pm, at the historic River Oaks Theater. Seating is limited to 500 seats, and will feature two notable pre-screening events: an art show of pieces by the artists featured in the film, and live wheatpasting and screenprinting demonstrations.

The showing is hosted by Aurora Picture Show, The Black Sheep Agency, Aerosol Warfare, and of course Shoot Edit Sleep. Tickets are on sale at the Aurora Picture Show website now for non-members; if you are an APS member admission is free but you must RSVP.

It is expected that the screening will sell out in advance. That is the main reason I’m not waiting until the next monthly LOVIEE to announce this. In light of this, please do not wait to buy your ticket (or RSVP) if you are interested in attending.

Update (2011-03-09): This is sold out.

Update (2001-04-07): A second screening was added at 9:30pm, which has since sold out, but just this morning a third screening was added at 10:30pm. This third session will not have a Q&A.
