On Nov. 6 the Brooklyn Museum will host another free evening of art and live performance. This week’s "First Saturday" lineup includes performances by Flamenco Latino (pictured) at 6 pm and 7 pm.

At 8 pm, drag performer Shequida sings opera with a hip-hop sensibility in the new exhibit "Passing/Po­sing: Kehinde Wiley Paintings"; at 9 pm and again at 10 pm, Chris Washburne and his band SYOTOS combine Latin rhythms and percussion with jazz, funk, R&B, hip-hop, gospel, Caribbean and Afro-Cuban music while artist Kevork Mourad creates visual artworks to accompany the music.

At 7 pm, Raquel Cepeda, editor of the new anthology "And It Don’t Stop: The Best Hip-hop Journalism of the Last 25 Years," will host a multimedia forum on the history of hip-hop journalism; and also at 7 pm, curator Barbara Gallati will discuss the museum’s new exhibit "Great Expectations: John Singer Sargent Painting Children."

Free tickets for both Flamenco Latino performances will be available in the Beaux-Arts Court beginning at 5 pm; free tickets for both Washburne-SYOTOS performances will be available in the Beaux-Arts Court beginning at 8 pm. The Brooklyn Museum is located at 200 Eastern Parkway at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights. For more information, visit or call (718) 638-5000.
