Warhol Cabaret in the Petrie Court Café: Kalup Linzy’s “Introducing Kaye”
Friday & Saturday, September 14 & 15, 2012, at 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. in the Petrie Court Café
During the opening weekend of the exhibition, the Met’s Petrie Court Café will be transformed into “Warhol Cabaret,” featuring Kalup Linzy. Linzy, whose video work appears in the Regarding Warhol exhibition, will perform original songs, as well as covers, against a video backdrop, introducing his new, emerging persona: The Artist Kaye. Linzy’s sharp-witted, mercurial stage presence channels the creative sizzle and edginess of Warhol’s multimodal portraiture.
In a multidisciplinary practice that includes videos, performances, and music, Kalup Linzy creates satirical narratives inspired by television soap operas, telenovelas, and Hollywood melodramas. Bringing an irreverent approach to stereotypes of race, gender, and sexuality, Linzy performs, most often in drag, in a series of memorable recurring roles. The artist serves as writer, director, cinematographer, editor, and actor—and, in a distinctive strategy, also voices and overdubs the dialogue of multiple characters. At once comic, raunchy, and poignant, Linzy's unique narrative videos fuse dramatic intensity with melodramatic irony. Kalup Linzy biography
