Rashaad Newsome's Assembly

Friday, February 18, 2022 12 PM Park Avenue Amory
Rashaad Newsome, from "Assembly"
Enter into a world where critical thinking, technology, dance, and visual art co-exist to explore the magical interconnectedness of being. This world-building is the jumping-off point of Assembly, Rashaad Newsome’s most immersive work to date that remixes Park Avenue Armoy’s Wade Thompson Drill Hall into an extra-dimensional safe space that is part installation, part classroom, part theater, and part nightclub.

During the day, visitors encounter many dimensions of Newsome’s practice, including video-mapped walls, hologram sculptures, collage, and sculptural works that merge and mutate images of Black and Black queer culture, fashion, textiles, and more. These works are also joined by Being, an AI humanoid figure who mesmerizingly generates poetry and leads participatory classes that combine dance, storytelling, conversation, and mindfulness meditation.

Available through March 6.

Part of: Afrofuturism

Tickets: $18 (plus fees); free for Armory
