Shade Compositions

Rashaad Newsome (b. 1979) utilizes culture for contemporary art performance. Here  is an excerpt of a "Shade Composition". Very interesting. I first saw his work exploring the use of Vogue and Ballroom dancing. Here is is website: BTW he is probably not the first to bring ballroom culture into the "white box". Trajal Harrell has been using Ballroom culture too: Robert Tyree introduced me to his work. Enjoy the delightful performance documents! -AK
