Dirty Looks: On Location
July 1 – 31, 2018
Dirty Looks, a non-profit platform for queer film, video and performance, will bring to Los Angeles a sweeping, month-long film and performance festival in queer spaces every day in July. On Location comes to LA from New York, where the month-long extravaganza taking place in a different venue each night drew raves. Working with 13 curators, On Location will offer time-based works in thriving queer community centers and once- significant sites lost to gentrification. On Location projects onto the city our queer pasts and present in ambient installations and screenings that question, engage and reconsider our communal geography.
The curatorial committee includes: Marvin Astorga + Young Joon Kwak, Bret Berg, Coaxial Arts Foundation, Raquel Gutiérrez, Suzy Halajian, Darin Klein, Ryan Linkof, Massive, Nacho Nava, Bradford Nordeen, Joe Rubin + The Women’s Center for Creative Work
The program will be selected from curator proposals narrowed down by the curatorial advisory committee, comprised of multi-faceted historians Ron Athey, Vaginal Davis, Jennifer Doyle + Lanka Tattersall.
