New York artist Sam Messer's animation "Denis the Pirate" is the centerpiece of the 178th installment of the MATRIX contemporary art series .

The 11-minute film--made in stop-motion utilizing more than 1,700 of Messer's etchings and drawings--recounts poet and novelist Denis Johnson's (1949-2017) tale of the eponymous pirate's epic adventures. Actor Liev Schreiber narrates the story, which is set to a score contributed by musicians Sarah Neufeld (from the band Arcade Fire) and Colin Stetson, and was edited by Russell Yaffe. In MATRIX 178 related sculptures, paintings and 140 of Messer's etchings and copper plates that were used in the film complement the animated piece. MATRIX 178 opens Oct. 5, 2017 and is on view through Feb. 11, 2018.

Hours are Wednesday - Friday: 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Admission: $5 - 15.
