ART: Project One Gallery presents Ceci n’est pas une Galerie, a group tribute to Surrealism that invites viewers to ask themselves, "if this is not a gallery, what is it?," featuring works that "usher us into the alternate universe of the unconscious mind, encompassing the nightmarish and the sublime." (6 p.m., Project One Gallery, 251 Rhode Island Street)

FILM: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts kicks off its series, From a Whisper to a Scream: Discovering Andrzej Zulawski, which features five films by the acclaimed European auteur.

The film is described as "[a]udacious, mystical, transgressive and explicit" with "a disturbingly apocalyptic finale." (7 p.m., Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission Street)
