On March 18th, join us at Rashid Johnson’s Brooklyn studio for an intimate look at the artist’s newest work, and an opportunity to better understand the ways in which this prolific artist successfully manages to work across media, in sculpture, photography and film. Set up to coincide with his current solo exhibition at the Upper East Side’s Salon 94 (which we strongly encourage you to see beforehand), this will be a timely opportunity to catch up with an artist whose career has shot up in recent years, with solo exhibitions in Europe and across the United States. At Salon 94, Johnson presents a sculptural installation that turns the domestic space of the townhouse’s ground floor into a trophy room to The Sweet Sweet Runner, a character portrayed in an accompanying film. In this manipulation of pop culture relics and artifacts, like in his photographic portraits of split identities behind faint smoke screens, Johnson is on a consistent quest for shifting notions of social and personal history, politics and spirituality.
This event is for ICI members at the $500 level and above only.
