Rashid Johnson - Fly Away

Exhibition, Hauser & Wirth, New York, USA.


From September 8, 2016 until October 22, 2016
An exhibition of new paintings and sculptures, complemented by a monumental installation that engages the gallery’s soaring architecture, reveals Rashid Johnson pondering themes of history, yearning, and escape while intensifying his longstanding investigation into the relationship between art, society, and personal identity. Also included are performances by New York-based classically trained pianist and music producer Antoine Baldwin (aka Audio BLK). During the first week of the show, Baldwin will be performing on an upright piano in the centre of the space. Thereafter, Baldwin will be periodically entering the gallery unannounced to activate the space anew by playing original jazz compositions.
