Performance Composition Speaker Series: Jibz Cameron a.k.a. Dynasy Handbag
The Performance & the Screen seminar invites you to join us for a conversation with artist Jibz Cameron a.k.a. Dynasy Handbag!
Jibz Cameron is a performance and video artist living in Los Angeles, performing multimedia work as alter ego Dynasty Handbag. Over the last 15 years, Cameron has combined tragedy and comedy, at such institutions as MOCA, PS1, Joe’s Pub, The Kitchen, REDCAT, The Broad Museum, The Hammer Museum, and the New Museum, among others. The New York Times has heralded her as “the funniest and most pitch perfect performance seen in years” and New York Magazine has called her “outrageously smart, grotesque and innovative.”
Cameron has written and produced seven evening-length performance pieces and countless short works that have been performed in clubs and venues internationally. She also has produced multiple video works and two albums of original music. She works as a professor of performance and comedy-related subjects as well as lecturing and teaching workshops. Cameron also produces and hosts Weirdo Night!, a monthly experimental comedy and performance event in Los Angeles
This event is a part of a speaker series run by Professor Malik Gaines and his Performance Composition class in the Department of Performance Studies. These events will take place every Monday in October and feature multidisciplinary guest artists.
