"Making Time: Considering Time as a Material in Contemporary Video and Film," a traveling exhibition opening Sunday at the UCLA Hammer Museum, explores how video artists use consciousness of time as the subject or material in their work. How do artists reconfigure time? Think of time in video and film as what light is to painting. The exhibition will explore this premise in 32 works by 28 artists--including Vito Acconci, John Baldessari and Andy Warhol--from the single-channel video works and early films of the 1960s and 1970s to the time-based work of today.

* "Making Time: Considering Time as a Material in Contemporary Video and Film." UCLA Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Blvd., Westwood. Tuesday-Wednesday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Thursday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Adults, $4.50; seniors and students, $3; UCLA students, $1; children 17 and under free.

Roy Rogers and Trigger are gone, but the happy trails apparently never end. Witness: "Queen of the Cowgirls: The Life and Legacy of Dale Evans." Dusty Rogers (a.k.a. Roy Rogers Jr.) and his band the High Riders will be joined at the Madrid Theatre by Rogers Legacy, a group composed of Roy and Dale Evans' grandchildren, in a musical tribute to the leading lady of the first cowboy couple, capped by an appearance by Evans herself.

4 pm: Dance

Barely five weeks after the death of his legendary father, Jose Greco II arrives with his flamenco dance ensemble to prove again that he belongs in nobody's shadow. "Greco dances with a dazzling mix of intelligence and daring, punctuating his spectacularly intricate percussive footwork with multiple leaps and turns derived from ballet," wrote The Times in 1998, when he was 36. That review focused on Greco Jr.'s mastery of "old and new flamenco--the archetypal body language at its most distinctive versus the eclecticism and experiment dominating the scene today."

* Jose Greco II Flamenco Dance Company, Robert B. Moore Theatre, Orange Coast College, 2701 Fairview Road, Costa Mesa, 4 p.m. $23 (students and seniors) to $29. (714) 432-5880.
