Rashid JohnsonRashid Johnson

Published by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art.
Edited by Ruth Addison, Kate Fowle. Introduction by Anton Belov. Text by Kate Fowle, Rashid Johnson.

Since 2001, Rashid Johnson (born 1977) has risen to international attention with his powerfully visual statements on contemporary culture. Working across painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video and performance, the artist has charted a trajectory that offers fresh readings of art history, social history, psychology and literature.
Rashid Johnson: New Work follows the making of the artist’s largest work to date: an immersive, living eco-system where fact, fiction, history and mythology converge. Described by the artist as a “brain” that prioritizes poetic rather than logical reason, the work offers unexpected associations between objects, video and sound, that have become untethered from their cultural roots, to provide nuanced readings on clichés of class, nation and race.
The first book to follow the development of Johnson’s sculptural and installation works, Rashid Johnson: New Work includes an interview with the artist by Kate Fowle and an extensive essay, also by Fowle, which investigates Johnson’s influences and references.
The New Work series examines in depth the making of a large-scale work, focusing on methods of research and production to provide new perspectives on the practice of a mid-career or established artist whose work resonates across cultures.

Rashid Johnson: Anxious MenRashid Johnson: Anxious Men

Published by The Drawing Center.
Text by Claire Gilman, Jeremy Sigler, Cheryl Johnson-Odim.

Universally accessible and employing common visual tropes such as the monochrome and the grid, Johnson's work is also self-referential, making specific allusion to his upbringing in Chicago and the Afro-centric values of his parents. In Rashid Johnson: Anxious Men, the artist creates a site-specific installation in the Drawing Room gallery. The core of the exhibition is a new series of black-soap-and-wax-on-tile portraits that Johnson calls his “anxious men.” Executed by digging into a waxy surface, they enact a kind of drawing through erasure and represent the first time Johnson has worked figuratively outside of photography or film, and on such a small scale. Whereas Johnson’s previous work has taken a more cerebral approach to questions of race and political identity, the drawn portraits confront the viewer with a visceral immediacy. The portraits are set within a multi-sensory environment that includes wallpaper featuring a photograph of the artist’s father from the year Johnson was born, and an audio sound track comprised of Melvin Van Peebles’s “Love, That’s America,” a song that originally appeared in Peebles’s 1970 film Watermelon Man and that was recently pressed into service by the Occupy Wall Street movement. In this way, the exhibition, documented in this volume, creates an immersive space that implicates not only the artist but also the viewer in its interrogation of selfhood and identity.

Rashid Johnson: Message to Our FolksRashid Johnson: Message to Our Folks

Published by Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
Foreword by Madeleine Grynsztejn. Text by Julie Rodrigues Widholm, Paul Beatty, Ian Bourland, Touré.

Message to Our Folks is the most comprehensive documentation of New York–based artist Rashid Johnson’s work to date. Johnson (born 1977) explores the complexities and contradictions of black identity in the United States, incorporating commonplace objects from his childhood in a process he describes as “hijacking the domestic,” and transforming materials such as wood, mirrors, tiles, rugs, CB radios, shea butter and plants into conceptually loaded and visually compelling works that shatter assumptions about the homogeneity of black subjecthood. Published in the new MCA Monographs series, Message to Our Folks accompanies the artist’s first major solo museum exhibition and features essays by curator Julie Rodrigues Widholm, novelist and critic Touré and art historian Ian Bourland and an excerpt from Paul Beatty’s trenchant and comic coming-of-age novel, The White Boy Shuffle.
