Sam Gilliam at David Kordansky Gallery March 28th, 2013 - May 11th, 2013
Posted 4/6/13

I want all of Sam Gilliam's paintings here to be book covers. Perhaps it's because their flatness and angles handily resemble package design of a certain era. I've always felt similarly about Ellsworth Kelly's bright, cheerful paintings that look like they'd been stolen from the detergent aisle and had their explosively optimistic names removed. Gilliam’s paintings on view at David Kordansky look mostly to me like one of the more recent cover designs for JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye, which is... [more]

Rashid Johnson at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) April 14th, 2012 - August 5th, 2012
Posted 5/30/12

Rashid Johnson employs an afrofuturist methodology to create an alternative universe out of black cultural detritus so that histories and possibilities of black life in America can be imagined otherwise. In his current solo show, Message to Our Folks, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Johnson projects a concept of blackness that cannot be confined or defined—it is the blackness of the universe, perhaps, which extends beyond the realm of our ability to completely grasp it. At the same time,... [more]

Rashid Johnson at Galerie Guido W. Baudach Wedding September 7th, 2010 - December 23rd, 2010
Posted 9/7/10

“There are Stranger Villages”, Rashid Johnson’s solo exhibition at Galerie Guido W. Baudach/Berlin Wedding, presents predominantly installations that combine elements of African American history, art history, found objects and remnants of pop culture. Using black identity as a focal point for expression and critique, Johnson is yet another contemporary artist investigating how much the self is a product of what is within and – or – what is without. --Mara Goldwyn [more]

Here's the second half of my post on Lush Life, a multi-gallery exhibition curated by Franklin Evans and Omar Lopez-Chahoud featuring the works of 60 artists.  Named after and inspired by Richard Price's 2008 novel set in the Lower East Side, the group exhibition is presented in nine neighborhood galleries - each focusing on one of the nine chapters from the book.  Chapters 5-9 are on view at Y Gallery, Collette Blanchard, Salon 94, Scaramouche, and Eleven Rivington, respectively.  The first and la...

Rashid Johnson at Nicole Klagsbrun February 22nd, 2008 - March 29th, 2008
Posted 3/9/08

When the podium has been overturned and forgotten and the pupils have all grown old with understanding, the bell of the classroom will become a bird’s nest and the rest will fade into shades of history. So goes the story of Rashid Johnson’s solo exhibition, The Dead Lecturer, at Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery. Johnson’s work—a combination of mirrors, wood, wax, black soap, shea butter, steel, and other ‘found objects’—at first seems as if it has been ex... [more]
