About

For his first solo exhibition in London, New York-based artist Rashid Johnson presents an entirely new body of work to create a ‘salon' in the South London Gallery's main space. Inspired by the idea of an imagined society in which psychotherapy is a freely available drop-in service, Johnson's installation of large-scale paintings, hanging plants, Persian rugs and six wooden day beds questions established definitions of the art object and its limitations, as well as the relationship between individual and shared cultural experience. Johnson has also curated the exhibition in the SLG's first floor galleries, bringing together abstract paintings by three artists living and working in the USA: Robert Davis, Sam Gilliam and Angel Otero. With thanks to Hauser & Wirth.
