Rough Version

Solo show of the Year: Rashid Johnson

Rashid Johnson's solo show at Guido Baudach has won the title - his solo show There Are Stranger Villages in Berlin blew me away. I could have sat and worshipped at the altar like pieces made of black tiles, visceral paint, shea butter, African Americana and a dose of pop for hours. I first discovered his work at 30 Americans at the Rubell Collection a couple of years ago and he keeps getting better. (I'm honoured that he's one of the artists in my next book out in April.)
