Kalup Linzy will give a talk at Carnegie Mellon University this week as part of the Visiting Artist Lecture series at the School of Art.
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.” *
Tuesday, October 1, at 6:30 pm.
Carnegie Mellon University
5000 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh.
