This two-night program is curated by creative director and core curator Bradford Nordeen. Dirty Looks: Los Angeles director and core curator Clara López Menéndez will also be in attendance for the Sunday screening.  The first evening will include a selection of work from Dirty Looks NYC’s programming during its first three years. Assembled for an anniversary screening, the program looks back on works that helped to shape or define Dirty Looks NYC as a project and the queer moment, at large. Ranging from a Charles Atlas video made (cheekily) for an amateur competition on MTV to a supercut assembled from stolen moments of Dynasty, queer appropriation and mainstream subversion run the gamut in this decades-spanning program. Night two presents Hardcore Home Movies, a collection of queer film and video works drawn from punk and queercore archives, and includes essential works by Jonesy, Jill Reiter, G.B. Jones and Greta Snider, in addition to unearthing recent finds and lesser-known titles.
