This event has ended.

Rashaad Newsome: Five (The Drawing Center) is a multimedia performance that highlights the art of voguing—characterized by angular, linear, and rigid body movements—as it relates to the drawn medium. New York-based vogue dancers and musicians, including renowned opera singer Stefanos Koroneos; distinguished vogue commentator Kevin Jz Prodigy; and acclaimed hip hop MC Scanz will perform, and be conducted by Newsome. This project encapsulates many of the artist’s core objectives: the formation, evolution, and ownership of cultural signifiers; the essence of historic art structures using modern urban symbols and cultural references; and the use of technology to elicit artistic expression. In addition to the evening performance, video documentation from Five (Hong Kong), originally performed at the 2012 Hong Kong International Art Fair, will be screened along with five multi-colored, unique line drawings produced from that performance using motion-tracking software.
