Artist Projects


Neal Medlyn

King is a performance art project centered on Michael Jackson, the seventh in a series in which Neal Medlyn embodies pop groups or stars, using their personas, biographies, artistic output and other related material culture as both source material and conceptual filters. Previous pieces have been built around Lionel Richie, Phil Collins, Prince, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus and the Insane Clown Posse. King will culminate in an evening-length performance slated to premiere and run at The Kitchen in New York from October 23 to 26, 2013, with costuming by Larry Krone, large sculptural element by Fawn Kreiger, lighting design by Madeline Best and musical direction by Matt Ray. Concurrent with the performance, there will also be an exhibit of video, art pieces, ephemera and related work from all seven shows in the Pop Star Series in The Kitchen theater (open 2-6pm October 24-26).
