A massive compendium on the multimedia art of Rashid Johnson, tackling themes of Black history, literature, philosophy and material culture

Rashid Johnson (born 1977) is renowned for challenging the assumptions often present in collective notions of Blackness. Based in New York, Johnson is among an influential group of American artists whose work employs a wide range of materials and images to explore themes of art history, literature, philosophy, and personal and cultural identity. After beginning his career working primarily in photography, Johnson has expanded into a variety of mediums, including text work, sculptural objects, installation, painting, drawing, collage, film, performance and choreography. Drawing on a dizzying array of historical, cultural, literary and musical references, Johnson ultimately invites audiences to find connections to their own lives.

Rashid Johnson: The Hikers presents works from his highly acclaimed shows at the Aspen Art Museum, Museo Tamayo and Hauser & Wirth. This dynamic and unprecedented collection of his work features a conversation between Rashid Johnson and choreographer Claudia Schreier, as well as essays by curators Heidi Zuckerman and Manuela Moscoso.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Financial Times

Tara Tabbara

American artist Rashid Johnson’s mosaic-inspired collages draw viewers into a dreamlike space where escapism leads to a new way of engaging with issues such as racial inequality and mental health.

Bookforum

Dave O'Neill

It’s hard to contain Rashid Johnson’s art in a gallery, let alone between two book covers. And yet, Rashid Johnson: The Hikers manages to capture the essence of the artist’s multivalent practice.

A glimmer of hope in new release, 'Rashid Johnson: The Hikers'

A glimmer of hope in new release, 'Rashid Johnson: The Hikers'

In 2019, American artist Rashid Johnson debuted the powerful site-specific film, choreographed performance and exhibition The Hikers at the Aspen Art Museum—produced in collaboration with Museo Tamayo and Hauser & Wirth New York under the auspices of the prestigious 2018 Aspen Award for Art. Featured here is a photograph of the performance, choreographed with Claudia Schreier, in front of the sixteen-foot-long Untitled Escape Collage (2019)—comprised of such varied materials as ceramic tile, mirror tile, braded red oak flooring, vinyl, spray enamel, oil stick, black soap and wax. The photograph, by Tony Prikryl, is reproduced from the extraordinary new 440-page, 9.5 x 13-inch, Swiss-bound exhibition catalog, which features remarkable documentation of the work in all three venues, as well as a conversation between Johnson and Schreier and insightful essays by curators Manuela Moscoso and Heidi Zuckerman, who quotes the artist, “I’m probably concerned about a lot of the same things that many of you are concerned about, to be completely honest. I’m concerned about us. I’m concerned about you guys. I’m concerned about the world that my son is going to be inheriting. He’s six years old. I’m concerned about my personal anxiety disorder. I’m concerned about race relations, gender issues, issues around homophobia, issues around how institutions function, the environment. If you can name an ‘ism,’ I’m probably concerned about that ‘ism.’” continue to blog
