Film

B Movies and Bad History: Cowboys in Space. See the best and worst examples of sci-fi westerns and explore the meaning behind them at this Bullock Museum cinematic series.

The program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Cowboys in Space and Fantastic Worlds." Self-guided tours of the show are available from 6 to 7 p.m., before B Movies and Bad History. 7 p.m. Sept. 24. Free. 1800 Congress Ave. thestoryoftexas.com

Art

“Sanctum.” A collection of internationally based artists, including Beili Liu and Scott Vincent Campbell, presents work based around the concept of genetic memory — how we inherit not only DNA but fear, habits, triumph, trauma and love, among other things, from our ancestors. A mixture of video, installation, photography, painting and sculpture, this group of work includes an excerpt from curator Alyssa Taylor Wendt’s latest film, “The Memory Inheritance,” filmed recently in Detroit. Noon to 6 pm. Tuesday-Friday through Oct. 5. Big Medium, 916 Springdale Road, Building 2, No. 101. 512-939-6665, bigmedium.org
