Event Navigation

Kalup Linzy is a multidisciplinary performance artist whose works employ a variety of pop cultural forms to explore cultural identities and gender fluidity and boundaries. Working across various mediums—including video, performance, photography, collage, fashion, television, music, and film—Linzy creates complex characters who are linked together to form an invented “family tree.” His work is found in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, and The Studio Museum in Harlem, among others.

All lectures are free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the East Campus Garage after 5:00pm or on Frew, Margaret Morrison, and Tech Streets after 6:00pm.
