Meanwhile, on yet another side of the planet, or Los Angeles, to be precise, the David Kordansky Gallery is currently hosting RASHID JOHNSON‘s solo exhibition entitled Islands, a show (the exhibition views are here) which explores some of the concerns of RICHARD WRIGHT’s novel Native Son (1940). For this occasion, I have chosen to share with you a short excerpt of the very interesting conversation between the American artist and TOM MORTON that has been released in the September Issue of Frieze Magazine. Make sure to read the entire interview via http://www.frieze.com/issue/article/the-history-man
➝ Islands is on view until October 29, 2014 at David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles. Additionally his work is part of the group exhibition The Forever Now:Contemporary Painting in an Atemporal World that will take place at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, from December to April 2015.
