“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.”

Artist Lecture by Stephen Shore

Free and open to the public. Seating is first, come first served. Doors open at 5:00 pm.

“In 1972, self-taught photographer Stephen Shore set out from his native New York City to Amarillo, Texas, on the first of what would become a decade’s worth of road trips across America. Shore’s trademark photographs of middle-American landscapes, interiors, and figures helped establish color photography as an accepted medium in the world of art. At age twenty-three, he was the second living photographer to have a one-man show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Shore has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; International Center of Photography, New York; George Eastman House, Rochester; Kunsthalle, Dusseldorf; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Jeu de Paume, Paris; and Art Institute of Chicago. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts and, most recently, received a commission from the CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Art to document the United States in its current state of economic downturn. Since 1982, he has been the Director of the Photography Program at Bard College in New York State, where he serves as the Susan Weber Professor in the Arts.”
