From the Dirty Looks web site:
Narcissister has amassed a diverse revenue of venues (MoMA, Abrons Arts Center, America’s Got Talent) in her 20 plus years working in contemporary dance and performance. This screening will be the first to survey the artist’s video works and will be followed by a performance. The Spectrum, a former residential dance studio-cum-queer community arts space, being the initial point of inspiration for the evening—which emerged from a late night dialogue between the artist and curator Bradford Nordeen, in that very locale.
The Spectrum opened its doors in 2011. Situated behind a residential façade in the site of a former dance studio, the Spectrum offers weekly classes in dance, yoga, “queerlates” and “queerballah,” as well as a rich assortment of dance parties and performance events. The brainchild of Gage Boone and Nicholas Gorham, the Spectrum offers all of its event to the queer community on a sliding scale admission structure.
Dirty Looks: On Location is a series queer interventions in New York City spaces, from July 1 – 31, 2013, artist film and video will appear in thriving queer social spaces and former sites of queer sociality (like shuttered bars, bathhouses and former meeting zones). A new piece, a different setting, each night in July.
