Today is the official opening night of Dirty Looks: On Location, a month-long series of queer interventions in New York City spaces, which was successfully funded via Kickstarter about a month ago. Throughout the whole month of July, film and video works of queer artists will be installed in former queer locations around the city - 31 events over 31 days. The line-up, which is now out, is pretty amazing, combining rarely screened gems by heroes such as AA Bronson, Mike Kuchar, William E. Jones, Charles Atlas, Jack Smith or Marlon Riggs with contributions by emerging queer artists such as Kalup Linzy or Heather Cassils. For the whole program please visit the On Location website or download the a map will a full calendar right here. The event will start today at Participant Inc. with a performance entitled “Unauthorized Interviews”, a live re-enactment of an interview between Jane Pauley, Steve Rubell, Michael Jackson and Liza Minnelli, embodied by Tara Mateik, K8 Hardy and friends (see picture on top).
Here’s also another one of the “location portrait” videos that were made in conjunction with the event and that reveal the history of former queer spaces:
