Rashaad Newsome

<p>Rashaad Newsome (b. 1979, New Orleans, Louisiana) is a multidisciplinary artist whose work blends several practices together including collage, sculpture, video, music, computer programming and performance, to form an altogether new field. He pulls intuitively from the world of advertising, the Internet, Black and Queer culture to produce counter-hegemonic works that use the diasporic traditions of improvisation and college, to craft compositions that walk the tightrope between intersectionality, social practice, and abstraction.<br> <br>Newsome has exhibited and performed in galleries, museums, institutions, and festivals throughout the world including The Studio Museum in Harlem, NYC; The National Museum of African American History and Culture, Washington, D.C.; The Whitney Museum, NYC; Brooklyn Museum, NYC; MoMAPS1, NYC; SFMOMA, San Francisco; New Orleans Museum of Art; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; The Garage Center for Contemporary Culture, Moscow; and MUSA, Vienna.</p>
