Intelligence Rashid Johnson at Hauser & Wirth

This past weekend I stopped by Hauser & Wirth gallery to see the Rashid Johnson show. Johnson, whose work is known for its African-American, socio-policitcal centered messages, presents a series of new paintings complemented by a large, greenery installation in this new show entitle 'Fly Away.' Taking its name from the time-honored 1929 hymn I'll Fly Away, ­the exhibition showcases Johnson's various themes of history and angst while intensifying his iconic theme of the relationship between art, society, and personal identity.

On view through 22 October, I'll Fly Away includes performances by New York-based classically trained pianist and music producer Antoine Baldwin, who performs on an upright piano situated at the center of Johnson¹s massive, plant installation environment. Baldwin periodically enters the gallery unannounced to activate the space anew by playing original jazz compositions.
