Folks, Listen Up

What better way to return to your hometown than with your first major museum solo exhibition?

Chicago-native-turned-Brooklynite Rashid Johnson’s latest highly publicized exhibit, Rashid Johnson: Message to Our Folks, is now showing at the Museum of Contemporary Art from April 14 - August 5. It’s an insightful and thought-provoking survey of nearly 40 photographs, sculptural installations, and film. Johnson is a graduate of Columbia, where the 30-something studied with portraitist Dawoud Bey and later received his first big break during an artist roundup by Chief Curator Thelma Golden at the Studio Museum in Harlem. We're guessing he'll win the prize for "Most Likely to Succeed" at his 15-year high school reunion. 220 East Chicago Ave. 312.397.4010. mcachicago.org
