Rashid Johnson: Fly Away
This event is now closed.
Hauser & Wirth will present "Fly Away," an exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by Rashid Johnson, complemented by a monumental installation that engages the gallery's soaring architecture. Taking its name from the time-honored 1929 hymn I'll Fly Away', a song reinterpreted over decades by scores of artists - from gospel legends of the Dust Bowl era to such contemporary pop performers as Kanye West - the exhibition reveals Johnson pondering themes of history, yearning, and escape while intensifying his longstanding investigation into the relationship between art, society, and personal identity.
