Rashid Johnson's multimedia, interdisciplinary artistic practice engages with and extends "post-black" conceptual art. In February of this year, he was named one of the most influential African-American artists working today by Artsy. Viewers have likely seen Rashid Johnson's work at the VCU ICA, where his site-specific "Monument" installation continues to occupy the main gallery through June 19. Rashid's carefully curated box is to be raffled off and announced at SOLSTICE 2019.
