Rashaad Newsome is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice is deeply invested in how images used in media and popular culture communicate distorted notions of power and status. From his series of compositions created by “throwing shade” or his various works documenting the dance form known as vogue, his works critiques the popular appropriation of dance, music, and vernacular expression developed in Harlem’s queer ballroom scene of the 1970s. He brings these cultural sensibilities to the Veterans Room for a site-specific work that brings together video installation, collage, sculpture, and live performance to create an interdisciplinary experience in his ongoing exploration of questions around pedigree, gender, and race.
