Dirty Looks is a bi-coastal platform for queer experimental film, video and performance. A roaming screening series, DL is an open platform for inquiry, discussion and debate. Designed to trace contemporary queer aesthetics through historical works, Dirty Looks presents quintessential GLBT film and video, alongside up-and-coming artists and filmmakers. Dirty Looks exhibits a lineage of queer tactics and visual styles for younger artists, casual viewers and seasoned avant-garde filmgoers, alike.
Over the course of five years, Dirty Looks NYC has staged local screening initiatives at The Museum of Modern Art, The Kitchen, Participant Inc, White Columns, Artists Space and Judson Memorial Church, with a Roadshow touring the West Coast yearly. DL: Los Angeles was launched in January 2015 instating a national reach for these programs.
