FROM THE ARCHIVES: Rashid Johnson, Smoke and Mirrors.
At SculptureCenter in 2009, for his first solo museum show in New York, Rashid Johnson presented a number of large-scale sculptural works that suggest altars, entertainment consoles, or constructivist-like abstractions alongside photographs and works in other media. Johnson engages with racial identity but in ways that insist on fluidity and contradiction. Johnson uses materials such as steel, poured wax, and shea butter, while juxtaposing relics and artifacts in an approach that flirts with the shamanistic.
