Rashid Johnson: Hail We Now Sing Joy

Friday, Jun 23 – Sep 17, 2017 7 – 8 pm

700 N. Art Museum Dr.
Milwaukee, WI 53202

Hail We Now Sing Joy presents new paintings and sculptures by Chicago native Rashid Johnson (b. 1977), who uses materials such as shea butter, black soap, and white ceramic tile to explore themes of race, identity, and escape. Fourteen works fill the exhibition space—their impact as monumental as their size. Antoine’s Organ, the largest of the artist’s architectural grid installations ever shown in the United States, conceals a piano that musicians will perform at scheduled times.
