Soap operas, so named because of the products associated with their early sponsors, are open-ended narratives that relate weekly or daily dramas set in familiar interiors. Kalup Linzy's performance pieces subvert this traditional narrative structure to address issues around race and sexual identity and to generally poke fun at outmoded stereotypes.

This photograph depicts Linzy, in character, be-wigged and in drag, sitting in front of a mirror. It's impossible to discern what follows next but whether singing a slow, drawn-out Billie Holiday number or relating the latest trials of rural life to the neighbor next door, it's sure to entertain.Read Less

Kalup Linzy is primarily known for his live performances, video works, and animation that invoke a satirical narrative inspired by soap operas and Hollywood melodramas to investigate stereotypes around sexual identity, race, and gender.

His films have a decidedly home-made aesthetic and are, in turn, hilarious and moving. Linzy himself often stars, inhabiting a range of characters—bewigged and in drag—who relate the quotidian but at times outrageous trials of everyday rural life. He employs a sly humor to skewer both icons of the New York art world and reality TV shows.

More recently, Linzy has produced an album and performance piece with James Franco, created an opera that debuted at SFMOMA, and shot two music videos for the hot fashion line, Proenza Schouler. He inherits the legacy of a long line of versatile and provocative performance artists including RuPaul and Jack Smith.
