Lecture by Kalup Linzy
Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 7:00 pm
Free and open to the public. No RSVP – Seating is on a first-come, first-served.
“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.”

“Mid-westerner Carl Corey makes photographs in traditional documentary fashion, traveling through Wisconsin in his RV, and offering glimpses into the workings of small towns and the people who inhabit them. His work is both cogent and wryly affectionate. In Tavern League, he trained his sights on eating and drinking establishments that have long been essential to the social and cultural fabric of Wisconsin communities but are in danger of disappearing as times change. Tavern League led to his examination of the plight of other family-run businesses in a series called For Love and Money. An ongoing related body of work, Blue, honors the American worker, from factory floor to office desk.
This lecture is in conjunction with the exhibition on display November 15, 2013 – February 2, 2014 at the UK Art Museum and is part of the Robert C. May Endowment Photography Lecture Series.
“Binh Danh, Assistant Professor of Photography at Arizona State University, has emerged as an artist of national importance with work that investigates his Vietnamese heritage and our collective memory of war, both in Viet Nam and Cambodia. He is also the inventor of the chlorophyll printing process, in which photographic images appear embedded in leaves through the action of photosynthesis.”

Shelley Socolofsky is an artist and educator living and working in Portland. Informed by long histories of textile production with its orientations to pattern, decoration, and association with ‘low arts,’ her work explores the material, conceptual, and poetic nuances of craft through a hybrid practice incorporating both digital technology and analogue hand processes.”

October 18th, Daytona Beach: Artist Talk, Book Signing & Reception for Rebecca Norris Webb “My Dakota”
“In 2005, I set out to photograph my home state of South Dakota, a sparsely populated frontier state on the Great Plains with more buffalo, pronghorn, coyotes, mule deer, ring-necked pheasants, and prairie dogs than people. It’s a landscape dominated by space and silence and solitude, by brutal wind and extreme weather. I was trying to capture a more intimate and personal view of the West. I was trying to capture what all that space feels like to someone who grew up there. A year into the project, however, everything changed. One of my brothers died unexpectedly. For months, one of the few things that eased my unsettled heart was the landscape of South Dakota. It seemed all I could do was drive through the badlands and prairies and photograph. I began to wonder: Does loss have its own geography?” – Rebecca Norris Webb
Registration is limited and open until October 10th or until filled. Cost: $100.

Opening Reception: Vivian Maier: A Woman’s Lens
Sunday, October 6, 2013, 4:00-7:00 pm
Free and open to the public.
“Since the discovery of her negatives in a Chicago storage locker in 2007, Vivian Maier (1926-2009) has garnered international attention for her poignant street photography, almost none of which she printed during her lifetime. Including street scenes from Chicago and New York in the 50s and 60s, as well as striking self-portraits, Vivian Maier: A Woman’s Lens will be the first showing of the mysterious photographer’s work in the Greater Boston area. Don’t miss this opportunity to view a rare talent whose rich, and little-known, life story is still unfolding.”
