Featured Screening: Dirty Looks presents Yonemotos ’80s videos at Judson Memorial Church

Tonight roaming screening series Dirty Looks, a platform for queer experimental film and video occurring the last Wednesday of each month, returns with Yonemotos’ ’80s Videos, a selection of early works by brothers Bruce and Norman Yonemoto.

The Los Angeles-based Norman and Bruce were born 1946 and 1949, respectively, to a family that had suffered losses in Japanese American internment camps. Raised and educated variously throughout California, their work offers an idiosyncratic reflection of post-war idealism, SoCal’s Hollywood mythmaking and suburban culture, and sexual and ethnic-national identity. As their EAI bio describes, the aritsts “deconstruct and rewrite the hyperbolic vernacular with which the mass media constructs cultural mythologies. Ironically employing the image-language and narrative syntax of popular forms such as soap opera, Hollywood melodrama and television advertising, the Yonemotos work from ‘the inside out’ to expose the media’s pervasive manipulation of contemporary reality and fantasy, individual and collective identity.” A number of other artists appear in the videos featured today, including Jeffrey Vallance, Tony Oursler and the late Mike Kelley, pictured above as a Japanese folkloric water imp in Kappa. More info about the specific titles is available on Dirty Looks’s website.

The program begins at 8:30 pm at Judson Memorial Church, Washington Square South, with $7 suggested donation at the door. It’s schedule to run approximately 85 minutes. Dirty Looks will also be handing out complimentary publications featuring original artworks and writing.
