Be A Man, Wear A Dress

-------

Kalup Linzy, the (male) performance artist and collaborator du jour (he’s performed at Proenza Schouler’s Pitti show and rocked out with pal James Franco) is no stranger to a dress—he’s slipped on more than a few for the soap opera videos that he exhibits at venues like MoMA’s PS1. At a party a few months back, I couldn’t resist asking him who he’d love to wear. I expected one of the hot young things—a Proenza or an Altuzarra. But Linzy didn’t miss a beat: Diane von Furstenberg, he said.


Now he’s getting his chance. For MOVE!, an exhibition-turned-party at PS1, curators Cecilia Dean (of Visionaire) and David Colman (of The New York Times) paired artists with fashion designers for an on-site installation. Dean made a few of the matches herself, but Linzy put in his own request—guess who. The soon-to-be-wrap-dressed performer will take the stage on the weekend of October 30 and 31, but until then, here’s an exclusive video of his fitting with DVF.
