Opening of "Rashid Johnson: Message to Our Folks"Thursday, September 6, 6-9pm – Miami Art Museum, 101 West Flagler, Miami

Rashid Johnson: Message to Our Folks will open at Miami Art Museum with an exhibition preview for members and guests. In Johnson’s first major solo museum exhibition, he explores the complexities and contradictions of black identity in a practice that is rooted in his individual experience. Incorporating commonplace objects from his childhood, the artist transforms everyday materials such as wood, mirrors, tiles, rugs, CB radios, shea butter and plants into conceptually loaded and visually compelling works. MAM members free; non-members $10. Pictured: Rashid Johnson, Jonathan with Eyes Closed, 1999. Toned silver gelatin print. 21 ½ x 27 ½ in. Artist’s proof. Collection of Paul and Dedrea Gray, Chicago.
