Co-presented with Northwest Film Center.
Kalup Linzy has been creating episodes of Conversations Wit De Churen since 2003 as part of a multidisciplinary practice that includes videos, performances, and music. Linzy’s satirical narratives are inspired by television soap operas, telenovelas, and Hollywood melodramas. They are intentionally irreverent and ripe with wry commentary on race, gender, sexuality, and familial relations. At once comic, raunchy, and poignant, Linzy’s unique narrative videos fuse dramatic intensity and irony. Rarely seen outside of gallery walls, this screening features all current episodes in their entirety, spliced with special clips of the artist’s music videos.
