Although artist Rashid Johnson explores themes of identity and black history in his work, he does not see the exhibition of his work at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum to be an exploration of the black experience.
What it does show is the breadth of his work during the last fifteen years, in multiple mediums and with multiple layers of meaning.
In early 20th century Paris, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque were equally well known after they created the Cubist style of painting. Today, Picasso is a household name while Braque is virtually unknown outside of art history circles.
Washington University’s Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum puts the spotlight on Braque with the opening of the exhibition ‘Georges Braque and the Cubist Still Life, 1928–1945.’
