“Brooklyn based Kalup Linzy is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes videos, performances, and music. His satirical narratives – inspired by soap operas, telenovelas and Hollywood melodramas – deal with race, sexuality, gender, class, and the art world. Serving as writer, director, cinematographer, editor, and actor, he performs (often in drag) a series of memorable, defiant characters; he has been described as the heir to artists and performers as diverse as Cindy Sherman, RuPaul and John Waters. Simultaneously salacious and poignant, Linzy’s works fuse dramatic intensity with melodramatic irony and gut-busting comedy. In summer 2010, he appeared on the long running ABC soap opera General Hospital alongside James Franco in a storyline that incorporated performance art. Linzy has released three full length albums and two EPs. His latest project, Romantic Loner (2012/13), includes an album, a feature film, two short films, live performances and an ongoing series of collages.”
