About Dawne Langford:
Dawne Langford is a Washington, DC-based curator, documentary filmmaker, and artist. She recently completed a six month project as the manager and curator of programs for the Fundred Reserve OPEN LAB, in collaboration with Mel Chin Studios. After many years working in public media as a broadcast TV editor, she transitioned to roles as a producer, working on independent documentaries Check It, Kandahar Journals, and Finding Joseph I. Dawne also launched a curatorial initiative dedicated to centering traditionally marginalized viewpoints in public discourse around artistic creation and representation. New projects in the works address hidden and obscured histories. Previous exhibition venues and collaborations include Transformer, SPRING/BREAK, and The Smithsonian Asian Pacific Center's Culture Lab series, and Crosslines.

About Random Playlist:
Moving pictures have been a source of inspiration and common cultural vocabulary for creators in all disciplines since the beginning of cinema. RANDOM PLAYLIST will transform the WPA into a micro-cinema in July and early-August, inviting four cultural producers from widely differing practices to share a selection of moving images that they look to for inspiration, elements of visual language, and clues to broader cultural concerns. Join us each Thursday night as WPA inaugurates a new playlist with drinks, casual conversation, and an informal discussion of the selections, hosted by James Huckenpahler.
