Grace Jones x Dirty Looks

In the early 1980s, Grace Jones’ collaborated with incredible photographer Jean-Paul Goude, bringing us iconic images of the singer (he later went on to shoot the original photograph that Goude ripped off from himself and reappropriated with Kim Kardashian to “break the internet”.) The pair also shot a concert film in 1982, elevating the music concert to video art status. Dirty Looks screens it tonight, with an introduction by Tavia Nyong’o and Bradford Nordeen with video by artist Rashaad Newsome. Resale tickets are sold out, but its worth walking over and waiting for standby!
