Kalup Linzy: Conversations wit de Churen V: As da Art World Might Turn.
This exhibition includes a single-channel digital video piece from Kalup Linzy’s (b. 1977) ongoing series Conversations wit de Churen V. In this series, Linzy combines elements of Def Comedy Jam, Tyler Perry’s “Madea” character, and the early films of John Waters and Andy Warhol with the inherent drama of the soap opera genre. The title, a satirical play on All My Children and As the World Turns, sets the humorous and absurd tone of the piece.
