Rashaad Newsome: Build or Destroy

Minnesota Street Project Foundation (MSP Foundation) is honored to announce the opening of California Black Voices Project grantee Rashaad Newsome's Build or Destroy--a single-channel video that brings to life the female composition in 1st Place. Animating the bedazzled and blazing body against an original soundtrack, the artist explores ideas around identity construction--particularly Black trans femme identity--and how performance might offer space for its creation and detonation. Build or Destroy will be presented at Minnesota Street Project (the Project) and on Adjacent, the Project's virtual space for art.

Rashaad Newsome is a multidisciplinary artist whose work blends several practices together including collage, sculpture, film, 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 craft compositions that walk the tightrope between intersectionality, social practice, and abstraction.

The exhibition focuses on video works inspired by the origins and continued dynamism of Vogue, a dance phenomenon that emerged from Harlem's queer ballroom scene.
