Rashaad Newsome

Working in video, performance, and collage, Rashaad Newsome corrals seemingly chaotic expressions of street culture into rigorously formal compositions. He is best known for his videos of dancers voguing in simple white-box interiors, though he has also culled material from YouTube. His collages, seen in fall 2011 at Marlborough Gallery, arranged images of flashy jewelry and other hip-hop status items in heraldic motifs. Newsome was included in Performa 11 and the 2010 Whitney Biennial, and has participated in group shows at the New Museum, MoMA PS1, and the Wadsworth Atheneum.
