De Buck Gallery wishes you a happy and healthy start to 2020! We are ringing in the new year by celebrating two upcoming events in San Francisco for Rashaad Newsome. If you are in the Bay Area, we hope that you will stop by and join us.
To Be Real
Fort Mason Center for Arts and Culture, San Francisco
January 10 - February 23, 2020
2 Marina Blvd
Landmark Building C, Suite 260
San Francisco, CA
Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC) and San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) announce the West Coast debut of Rashaad Newsome’s To Be Real, an exhibition environment of collage, sculpture and the interactive A.I. Being. The exhibition presents a series of neo-Cubist portraits in expressive frames, threading an ornamental glamour through figures reflecting on human agency, Blackness, and the radical futurity of emerging identities. Paired with new sculpture, A.I. and installation elements, To Be Real invites the viewer to imagine a richer and mutually shared way of being in the world.
The exhibition will be on view January 10 – February 23, 2020 in the SFAI Main Gallery on Pier 2 at FMCAC. Wednesday to Sunday, 11am to 7pm. Admission is free and open to the public.

Rashaad Newsome’s 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 MOAD 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.
