Dirty Looks Adds Seven New Board Members

Dirty Looks, the “bicoastal platform for queer experimental film, video, and performance,” according to its website, has appointed seven new members to its board, writes Maximilíano Durón of Artnews. They are Joshua Alvarenga, who works in development for the Los Angeles Philharmonic; artist Rhys Ernst; Andrew Gould, the director of development for the ONE Archives Foundation; Jamillah James, curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; film festival programmer Harry Vaughn; John Polly, an editor at large for the website; and Justine Suzanne Jones, a film and television producer. They join the other four board members: Samuel Vasquez, the deputy director of advancement at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; television producer Lauryn Siegel; former director of programming for the Outfest Film Festival, KP Pepe; and arts lawyer and curator, Pati Hertling. Dirty Looks has also announced that the fourth edition of its month-long “On Location” film program will take place in Los Angeles during the summer of 2018—its first comprehensive run in the city after several standalone screenings hosted there since 2015.

“We’re usually seen within the context of art world, and these additions [to our board] will help diversify the ways On Location’s spatial interventions can reach diverse communities,” said Bradford Nordeen, the founder of Dirty Looks.
