Tuesday, September 18 - Friday, July 26 All Day - Tseng Gallery, Oviatt Library
Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday October 27 4-6pm
GALLERY TALK: Monday, October 29 10am
This is a group exhibition featuring artists whose work depicts visions of future dystopias based on a turbulent present. Desert wastelands, faux fallen satellites, devises designed to ensure your survival and a world seemingly run by giant computer servers; the artists in this show offer a prescient window into a world that not only may be, but in some places, already exists.
Artists include Lisa Adams, Libby Clarke, Daniel Dove, Trygve Faste, Sean Higgins, Kelly McLane, Thomas Muller and Klutch Stanaway.
Additional events including lectures and artists visits in conjunction for this exhibition can be found at www.csun.edu/artgalleries.
Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 12-4, Thursdays 12-8pm. Please note: The Gallery will be closed Nov. 12 and Nov. 22-24.

Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque
A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut
The Last Metro (Le dernier metro) (1980, 131 mins.)
Gerard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve star as members of a French theater company living under the German occupation during World War II in Truffaut's gripping, humanist character study. Against all odds -- a Jewish theater manager in hiding; a leading man who's in the Resistance; increasingly restrictive Nazi oversight -- the troupe believes the show must go on. Equal parts romance, historical tragedy, and even comedy, The Last Metro is Truffaut's ultimate tribute to art overcoming adversity.
