The second season of Raw/Cooked presents a series o f four exhibitions by under-the-radar Brooklyn artists who have been invite d by the Brooklyn Museum with support from Bloomberg to show their first ma jor museum exhibitions. The artists are given the opportunity to work with the Museum’s collection and to display in spaces of their choosing\, howeve r unconventional.

\n

The four artists in the series were recommended b y an advisory board of well-known Brooklyn artists\, including Michael Joo\ , Paul Ramírez Jonas\, Amy Sillman\, and Mickalene Thomas\, each of whom pr oposed several promising artists. Brooklyn Museum curator Eugenie Tsai made the final selections.

Raw/Cooked opens on November 16 wit h Rumination\, an exhibition of the work of Bedford-Stuyvesant–bas ed artist Duron Jackson\, recommended by Thomas. Jackson’s multimedia insta llation evokes a private library or reading room\, where viewers are invite d to contemplate themes of race and power embedded in American history and culture. A minimalist white cube chair is situated at the center of a carpe t\, both constructed by the artist from black-and-white dominoes.  Jackson’ s Blackboard Paintings—large-scale geometric abstractions rendered in graph ite and blackboard paint—cover the surrounding walls. These works present a bstracted aerial views of specific American prisons. Jackson juxtaposes his abstract works with Malvina Hoffman’s early modern sculptural portrait\, < em>Senegalese Soldier. Drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection\, Hoffman’s larger-than-life-sized bust stands at the center of the installat ion. In Rumination\, Jackson brings together historical and contem porary cultural representations to explore the inter-related histories of i ncarceration\, surveillance\, and control.
