DESCRIPTION

DIRTY LOOKS, a touring New York-based platform for queer experimental film and video, is thrilled to participate in California College of the Arts and Queer Cultural Center's Queer Conversations on Culture and the Arts. Curator Bradford Nordeen will screen and discuss contemporary queer moving-image culture with local artist and curator, Margaret Tedesco. Screening selections from the program FEMALE TROUBLE (screening in full on Sunday, Feb 12th, 2pm at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts), the works showcased explore & explode normative roles of femininity and gender. With pieces that span five decades, these artists queer female subject space via drag tactics and overt performativity, with approaches ranging from masquerade to mythic, performance document to exposé video zine.
