Bold Notion

Urban Culture & Postmodern Creation -

Featuring POSE and Questlove

Join us for a conversation with Bold Notion guest artist POSE and Grammy award-winning musician and producer Questlove. Moderated by Marc Shiller of the Wooster Collective.

While POSE honed his craft and style in the streets before he brought it inside to a fine art gallery, Questlove, drummer for over 20 years with The Roots, transitioned from creating independent albums to performing on primetime mainstream media when The Roots became the house band for The Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon in 2009. Questlove has continued with him since 2014 on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The artists will discuss their journey and process in utilizing postmodern sampling, taking from their environment and tastes to make original and bold statements of their own. The discussion will be moderated by Marc Shiller of the Wooster Collective, an online destination that showcases and celebrates ephemeral art placed on streets in cities around the world.

Following the conversation will be an intimate dinner in our Private Dining Room with POSE. Space for the dinner is extremely limited.

Included in CNN's Ones to Watch in 2015 and having exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Dubai, and Los Angeles, POSE has spent most his life painting graffiti and working as a billboard and sign painter. For Bold Notion, POSE has taken inspiration from a fictional piece, Sparrow, written by his friend Waref Hawasli. Using various mediums and the space itself, POSE explores the way in which the story is being told, creating an experiential art environment that you can live and walk through.

Drummer, DJ, producer, culinary entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author, and tastemaker, Questlove continues to explore the creative connection between musicians and chefs at his ongoing Food Salons. Questlove is passionate about finding synergies between the two arts by experimenting with ideas and ingredients, often resulting in ground-breaking consumer experiences.
