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.

Previous winners and runners-up include Michal Chelbin, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Alexander Gronsky, Sarah Palmer, Bryan Schutmaat, and Jordan Tate, among others.
First prize is $3,000 and an exhibition at Aperture Gallery. The first-prize winner and up to five runners-up will be featured on Aperture’s website, where their images will be accompanied by a brief statement written by Aperture staff. All winners are announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches forty thousand subscribers across the globe, including curators, critics, and members of the photography community. Winners will also have the opportunity to offer their prints via the Aperture Foundation limited-edition print program.”

“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.”
