      Rashid Johnson: Message to Our Folks

      For Rashid Johnson's first major museum solo exhibition, the former Chicagoan and alumni of the UBS 12x12 exhibition series (2002), explores the complexities of black identity by creating a dialogue with legacies of black intellectual and popular figures through a process and materials-based practice of photographs, sculptures, videos, installations, and paintings that are rooted in his own identity as a black male in the U.S. A preeminent artist of the post-media generation, Johnson's sculptures, photographs, and installations evoke an other-worldly science fiction where Sun Ra meets Al Green and Mario Van Peebles, often incorporating found objects- plants, books, record albums, photographs, vessels, shea butter, for example- for their personal and universal connotations.
