LAXART presents the first solo exhibition of New York based artist Kalup Linzy, curated by Laxart Adjunct Curator, Malik Gaines. “The conventions of television soap operas become a hilarious and insightful psycho-sexual playground for New York-based artist Kalup Linzy, as he turns this most mundane form inside out with his series of clever videos, ‘Conversations Wit De Churen’.” (PR LAXART). Linzy’s film approach recalls the early styles of John Waters, Andy Warhol, and George C. Wolfe. This episode shows a snippet of Linzy’s video and a short interview with Kalup Linzy. LAXART, July, 2006. By VTV correspondents Parichard Holm Steakley, Slim K and Gerold Wunstel.
