Dennis Keefe & Glenn McKay | Shapeshifters Cinema: Experimental Film & Music | Oakland

Dovetailing off recent programming at the Exploratorium, Shapeshifters is excited to present the work of pioneering light artists Dennis Keefe and (the late) Glenn McKay who are two of the artists responsible for creating the famous psychedelic light shows of the 1960s.

Working together under the name of the Headlights Light Show, Keefe and McKay performed at many west coast venues, including the Fillmore, and also toured extensively with the Jefferson Airplane. The highlight of the program will be a live light art performance by Dennis Keefe with collaborators Jim Baldocchi and Lori Varga and musical accompaniment by Chris Musgrave (Lumerians) and Sarah R. Brady. We will also be showing parts of McKay’s video Altered States which was created for the artist’s SFMOMA retrospective in 1999 and demonstrates his light art in various forms over the course of four decades.
