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.
Kalup Linzy (American, born 1977)

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!).

Write us some winter haikus.
We’ve added a new video to our Vimeo collection - recent graduate Sara Green (OC ‘12) discusses Augustino Carraci’s engraving, from 1589, after Tintoretto’s “The Crucifixion.” This work is included in the exhibition Printing Practice: Religious Prints from the Renaissance, curated by Green.
The exhibition is on view in the Ripin Print Gallery through December 23, 2012.
This. Is. So awesome.
This is a representation of a video installation that I designed while at the IRCAM in Paris. The max patch randomly picks a sound file from a data base of about 50 different sounds all different interpretations of the poem Le Voyage by Charles Baudelaire. The sounds were then processed through delays, gains, and a spacialization tool developed at the IRCAM and set between ranges that I pre-determined although in every performance I did not know where in the range the audio file would land. The final data from all the various audio processes was then used to control both video play back and processing. The things that remained constant are the order or the videos that are played and the background drone track. The installation was originally meant for a quad set up but for this post obviously it is in stereo.
I recommend headphones.
This webisode from The Amerikans, entitled “Napkin Tales,” features a score by senior Composition major Gerard Marcus, in addition to sound design by senior TIMARA major Eli Stine.
Do you know about The Amerikans? These short documentary webisodes add to the larger narrative of Amerika: A Portrait in Three Notebooks that Mika Johnson ‘00 and Associate Professor of English and Cinema Studies Jeff Pence are weaving.
This episode, ”Double Feature,” showcases sound design by TIMARA major Eli Stine and original music by Alexander Overington ‘10.
