    12 min, 42 sec
    Edition of 5 + 1 AP

Kalup Linzy thematically explores sexuality, gender stereotypes, cultural identities, and his childhood upbringing through soap opera based video and performance works. His videos are characteristically hyperbolic and gritty, often low-tech in quality with plots calling on socialization and community. Linzy pushes gender boundaries by adorning himself and his subjects in drag, manipulating the voice, and inserting a familiar cultural vernacular into his dialogues. Each of his characters include an extensively mapped background, layered and linked together with the others to create a family tree.

 

Kalup Linzy was born in Florida and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Kalup Linzy recent solo exhibitions include Sundance Film Festival, Park City, UT; Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley, CA; Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY; and LAX ART, Los Angeles, CA, among others. Recent group shows include The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; and MoMA P.S. 1, Long Island City, NY, among others. Linzy has had multiple performances and screenings including the Carpenter Center at Harvard University, Cambridge, MA; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; The Kitchen, New York, NY; The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, CA, among many others. He has been honored with awards and grants including The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation grant, The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, The Creative Capital Foundation grant, The Art Matters grant, The Jerome Foundation grant, The Harpo Foundation grant, and The Headlands Alumni Award residency. Among Linzy’s works in permanent collections are The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY; and The Rubell Family Collection, Miami, FL.
