Speaker: Kalup Linzy, participating artist in the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH) exhibition Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art.

Kalup Linzy is an American video and performance artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Linzy's best-known work is a series of video art pieces satirizing the tone and narrative approach of television soap opera. Linzy performs most of the characters himself, some in drag. Linzy also performs on stage using many of the same characters. In 2007, New York magazine named him one of the year's 10 most promising artists. Linzy's work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Studio Museum in Harlem, and Whitney Museum of American Art.

This lecture is presented by the Core Program of the Glassell School of Art.
