A blurry photo of a Black person. The image does not move but it looks like the person had been moving. The person might have been telling a story. Possibly outside in the dark.

Artist in residence NIC Kay takes over @newmuseum with "form in a sentence" (2021), a non-linear movement work that unfolds with 92 posts on the artists’ social media platforms including @okaynickay. "form in a sentence" is part of the project #blackpeopledancingontheinternet, the artist's ongoing inquiry into the ways social media platforms influence collective and personal memory, form, transcultural exchange, and documentation of African diasporic dance/movement and Black and q***r internet cultures.

This past academic year, the New Museum launched Youth Spectrum Arts (YSA): a new, stipend-supported afterschool program for young people ages fifteen to nineteen. Building on our history of critically engaging youth, YSA engages young people with contemporary art and culture, with a focus on gender, sexuality, and q***r and trans communities. Through workshops, artmaking, and discussion, participating youth connected with each other and guest artists. Head to our Instagram stories to see some of the students' work and activities produced during this inaugural year 💛

👑 Artist Spotlight: Jean-Michel Basquiat 👑

Jean-Michel Basquiat employed abstraction and figuration to make overt and coded social commentary, using his bold formal gestures to address concepts of colonialism, class struggle, state authority, and police violence.

"Procession," on view as part of "Grief and Grievance," is part of a body of work relating to the American South and the Basquiat's Haitian-Puerto Rican heritage. The artwork calls to mind both the deep psychological pain of slavery in the region and the spiritual terrain of traditional jazz funerals, during which processions of mourners follow the remains of the deceased.

🥁 ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Tyshawn Sorey 🥁

Tyshawn Sorey, who first gained notice as a percussionist, has released a number of critically acclaimed albums, including "Alloy" (2014) and "Verisimilitude" (2017)—both lauded as complex works of melancholy. While "Alloy" is suspenseful and contemplative, the sounds of "Verisimilitude" evoke theorist Fred Moten’s connection between moaning and mourning.

Sorey's work "Pillars," on view as part of "Grief and Grievance," gathers eight musicians who play electric and acoustic guitars, percussion, and brass instruments. As Sorey has explained of his hybridized form of improvisation and composition, “The idea of what is composed and what is improvised is pointless.” During certain passages, a drum rolls for minutes on end, while at others, quiet is reasserted until a horn lets out a sound like a distant cry, a hushed grievance.

Experience Sorey's work in "Grief and Grievance," and don't forget to join us this Thursday June 3 at 7 p.m. EDT for a conversation with the artist and curator Gary Carrion-Murayari: https://bit.ly/3utUs2T

Tyshawn Sorey is a multi-instrumentalist musician whose complex musical scores roam across genres and musical idioms. He is interested not only in playing multiple instruments, but in exhausting a number of different methods for playing a single instrument, including using his mouth to blow on the surface of an instrument not traditionally played that way, or sliding the palm of his hand down the strings of a guitar, an approach that requires a revision of conventional technique.

Sable Elyse Smith works in video, sculpture, photography, installation, and text. Her work explores the ways incarceration and anti-Black violence is wrought upon bodies and results in physical and psychic wounds that are both personal and communal. This topic is personal for the artist, whose work is informed by visiting her father in each of the six prisons in which he has been incarcerated over the past twenty years. Smith resists mainstream narratives of incarceration and instead emphasizes the personal stories of her subjects.

VdOArt, inaugurato nuovo percorso per iniziative culturali. Visitate il sito: www.vdoart.it
1.We recognise oscillation to be the natural order of the world.2.We must liberate ourselves from the inertia resulting from a century of modernist ideological naivety and the cynical insincerity of its antonymous bastard child.3.Movement shall henceforth be enabled by way of an oscillation between positions, with diametrically opposed ideas operating like the pulsating polarities of a colossal electric machine, propelling the world into action.4.We acknowledge the limitations inherent to all movement and experience, and the futility of any attempt to transcend the boundaries set forth therein. The essential incompleteness of a system should necessitate an adherence, not in order to achieve a given end or be slaves to its course, but rather perchance to glimpse by proxy some hidden exteriority. Existence is enriched if we set about our task as if those limits might be exceeded, for such action unfolds the world.5.All things are caught within the irrevocable slide towards a state of maximum entropic dissemblance. Artistic creation is contingent upon the origination or revelation of difference therein. Affect at its zenith is the unmediated experience of difference in itself. It must be art’s role to explore the promise of its own paradoxical ambition by coaxing excess towards presence.6.The present is a symptom of the twin birth of immediacy and obsolescence. Today, we are nostalgists as much as we are futurists. The new technology enables the simultaneous experience and enactment of events from a multiplicity of positions. Far from signalling its demise, these emergent networks facilitate the democratisation of history, illuminating the forking paths along which its grand narratives may navigate the here and now.7.Just as science strives for poetic elegance, artists might assume a quest for truth. All information is grounds for knowledge, whether empirical or aphoristic, no matter its truth-value. We should embrace the scientific-poetic synthesis and informed naivety of a magical realism. Error breeds sense.8.We propose a pragmatic romanticism unhindered by ideological anchorage. Thus, metamodernism shall be defined as the mercurial condition between and beyond irony and sincerity, naivety and knowingness, relativism and truth, optimism and doubt, in the pursuit of many disparate and elusive horizons. We must go ahead and oscillate!
