Mykki Blanco Headlines After-Hours Event at Jewish Museum TonightMykki Blanco Headlines After-Hours Event at Jewish Museum Tonight
by BWW News Desk - Nov 20, 2014

The Jewish Museum presents the next event in its popular series of after hours events, The Wind Up. Featuring art, live music, activities, and an open bar, The Wind Up will take place tonight, November 20 from 8pm to 11pm. Focused on the exhibition From the Margins: Lee Krasner | Norman Lewis, 1945-1952, the evening features a performance by rapper, performance artist, and poet Mykki Blanco. Multi-gendered and genre defying, Blanco brings hip-hop, electronica, and punk into surprising juxtaposition with high-fashion drag and queer performance. Known for testing the boundaries of hip-hop, in which queer artists remain largely tokenized despite their enormous influence, Blanco exemplifies the way in which the cultural margin is often the most innovative site of artistic production. Similarly, artists Lee Krasner and Norman Lewis innovated 'from the margins' of Abstract Expressionism during the 1940s and 50s, and as a woman and an African American, respectively, were often overlooked in mainstream criticism of the time.
