From an anynoymous source we just heard that Kalup Linzy pulled out at the last minute from his show scheduled to open Friday at Monique Meloche. Rob Davis & Michael Langlois, also showing, stepped up and filled the whole space. The website now makes no mention of Linzy and only features info on “Robert Davis + Michael Langlois in collaboration with Rashid Johnson Look into the Rays...”
Presumably they continue their sacrament-fueled partying the trio famously did in Berlin earlier this year and commemorated with a full page ARTFORUM ad. As for Linzy there is no speculation as to why it happened. He is still scheduled to speak at the The School of The Art Insitute on March 28. Earlier this spring it was heard that Linzy had been searching for a venue in Chicago, did one deemed "better" or more "high-profile" pop up? It's anyone's guess as to why and how this went down.
Any thoughts or comments?
