  • Nic*Rad and Brock Scott explore dreams at MINT Gallery tonight

Home videos of Basquiat, dreaming boys at MINT Gallery, and subterranean cinema at Eyedrum this weekend. Details after the jump.



The ambitious Dreamer Boy Dan project opens at MINT Gallery tonight. The work centers around a narrative of Dreamer Boy Dan's life, as told through ten paintings which are accompanied by ten poems which will be set to music by a band of ten muscians. Catch all that? Little Tybee frontman Brock Scott and visual artist Nic*Rad started collaborating about two years ago and tonight their dream will be birthed. Book of Colors opens up.

The latest film about Basquiat is a documentary of an unusually intimate sort. The Radiant Child is largely based around video that Basquiat's friend Tamra Davis shot of him, just a couple of years before he died. When the film premieres tonight at Midtown Art Cinema, the 7 pm screening will be followed by a conversation hosted by Fahamu Pecou and including our own Cinque Hicks.



Eyedrum hosts a series of shorts on Saturday as part of the Atlanta Underground Film Festival. Subjects include "They Always Get You In the End Shorts," "North American Horror Shorts," and "It's Personal Shorts" among others. No "Khaki Shorts" on the schedule as of press time. You check out more details about the films at Eyedrum and AUFF.
