Image-maker Bill Daniel is an art fox. Affable, handsome, caring, he shoots film and moves on - without his subjects having noticed. Daniel is considered one of America's coolest documentarians. Exhibits of his work have been seen recently at the Berkeley Art Museum, the San Francisco Art Institute and MOCA Los Angeles. A winner of a Guggenheim fellowship, he exhibits coast to coast and in Europe.

The Daniel show to be exhibited at minicine? on Tues, Jan 20, is Tri-X Noise.

Also presenting at minicine is New England Home Movie Tour. Among its handmade shorts is work by Luther Price, a major American artist whose work at the Whitney Biennial 2012 was considered tout le tout.

minicine?, a creation of David Nelson, has produced most of its exhibits and concerts of recent years at 846 Texas Ave. Regrettably, building code issues were the impetus to close 846 Texas Ave some 2 years ago and end that phase of minicine history.

Does this show represent a return of the salon on Texas Ave? Says Nelson, "The space @ 846 is not officially reopening at this time. No updates have been made to make regular programming possible. A fire inspector has been hired to be on hand for this event in order to comply with city requirements. For the last two years, the space has been turned into more of a working studio and now everything has been pushed to the corners for this event. So the space has been cleared out particularly and especially for Tri-X Noise and the New England Home Movie Tour. No future programs have been scheduled."

Doors open 7 to 10 pm; films roll at 8 pm. Donation: $5 or $10.
