Rashid Jonhson, New Grouth, Ballroom Marfa

Ballroom Marfa is proud to announce the opening of New Growth, a solo exhibition of new work by Rashid Johnson, on March 8. Johnson combines both personally and historically loaded material, such as shea butter and black soap with objects such as LP covers and books in complex installations that confound the uniformity of collective identity and multicultural representation. Beginning with the question, “What would happen if Sun Ra, George Washington Carver and Robert Smithson started a community together in the desert?New Growth’s playful scrutiny intertwines cosmology, escapism and irrigation in a re-contextualization of the lines between past, present and future in Marfa’s desert setting.







In keeping with Ballroom Marfa’s mission, New Growth will feature newly commissioned work including a large-scale sculpture and video—both produced during the artist’s stay in Marfa, as well as paintings, works in wood, and islands of sculptural installation.
