Catalogue Description: A spectacular short video “Knot” (3:45) shows fragmentary figures floating, twerking, and dancing in a variety of constructed spaces. The work references baroque architecture, hip-hop culture, and black and LGBTQ subcultures and highlights desire, capitalistic obsessions, and systemic oppressions. Newsome shows a keen awareness of art historical and alternative cultural sources to offer pointed commentaries on contemporary culture and identity politics.
