Rashaad Newsome

Distinguished Visiting Faculty
Rashaad Newsome

Rashaad Newsome is a multidisciplinary artist who 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 collage, to craft compositions that walk the tightrope between intersectionality, social practice, and abstraction.

Newsome has exhibited and performed at The Studio Museum in Harlem (NYC), The National Museum of African American History and Culture (DC), The Whitney Museum (NYC), Brooklyn Museum (NYC), MoMAPS1 (NYC), SFMOMA (CA), New Orleans Museum of Art (LA), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), The Garage Center for Contemporary Culture (Moscow), and MUSA (Vienna).

Education: BFA, Tulane University, 2001
