Newsome's Shade Compositions takes up the body language and voice of certain women of color- wondering how a seemingly sassy street expression extends across the globe as an open vernacular. Unlike previous iterations, the SFMOMA performance includes local women artists and also drag performers; this presentation of of the piece meditates on the changing footprint of the African American community in the Bay Area and on the way queer culture has drawn sustenance and inspiration from the iconic "black diva." "Mighty real," indeed.
Free with museum admission.
