In addition to four new exhibitions on view this semester, we’ve also rotated several works onto view in the Ellen Johnson Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, including a new video artwork by Kalup Linzy.The practice of Harlem-based artist Kalup Linzy spans video, performance, and music. In works that often confront issues of race, gender, and sexuality, Linzy takes center-stage and performs a variety of roles, frequently in drag. In Lollypop, Linzy and fellow artist Shaun Leonardo lip sync along with a 1933 blues tune, restaging the duet as a gay flirtation with Linzy’s characteristic melodramatic irony.You can catch this video installation during this week’s First Thursday evening hours, and through the end of the semester.

Anonymous asked: Ma'ayan, can I have a youtube video to watch fifty thousand times before the ED decisions come out too? I'm dying!

Yes, you can :) But you only need to watch it 2,600 times because it’s already December 5th! Here is Professor of Organ James David Christie ‘75 taking us on a tour of ALL the Oberlin organs (there are lots!).
