Revue is a choreographed, repeated routine performed naked, currently for 24 hours set to Cab Calloway’s popular Cotton Club track “Pickin’ up the Cabbage”.
Revue will be filtered digitally through institutions in cities throughout the world
where Josephine Baker performed, and then back into the public domain. The performance is intent on reimagining the representation of black bodies, with an emphasis on protection, care, positioning and preservation.

Jade Montserrat works at the intersection of art and activism through drawing, painting, performance, film, installation, sculpture, print and text. The artist interrogates these mediums with the aim to expose gaps in our visual and linguistic habits.
