“Dirty Looks compiles eight years of experimental screenings for a shorts program of signature delights that queer the pop cannon and (under)mine history for all of her unanswered questions. Ranging from digital drag revisionism to post-bohemian celluloid, Dirty Looks: 8 Years on reassesses the past through a fiercely queer and politicized lens, ‘who brought us here?’ and ‘where are we now?’ Ranging from 16mm films, super8 transfers, Hi8, HD video and Getty stock footage, this DL Cliff’s Notes screening spins circles around contemporary queer subjectivities, snarling with a punk zeal and a utopian demand for more.” (Dirty Looks)

About Dirty Looks

Dirty Looks Inc is a platform for queer film, video and performance. Using film and time-based art to illuminate queer histories and liminal spaces across Los Angeles and New York City, Dirty Looks traces contemporary queer aesthetics through historical works, presenting quintessential GLBTQ 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 seven years, Dirty Looks has staged screenings at The Museum of Modern Art, The Kitchen, The Hammer, Participant Inc, White Columns, ONE Archives, Artists Space and Judson Memorial Church. DL began regular Los Angeles programming in January 2015, instating a national reach for these programs.
