Rashid Johnson and Charyl Johnson-Odim

Heart-Turned-Inside-Out Poems

‘Rashid Johnson & Charyl Johnson-Odim: Heart-Turned-Inside-Out Poems’ contains poems by Cheryl Johnson-Odim, Rashid Johnson’s mother, which are accompanied here by a selection of Johnson’s drawings and a conversation between mother and son.

The conversation is about the culture in which Rashid Johnson grew up, with personal anecdotes, for example, about his teenage years as a graffiti writer, and their reflections on their lives and cultural shifts.

Published with Hauser&Wirth on occasion of two exhibitions of work from Rashid Johnson:

‘Seven Rooms and a Garden’, Rashid Johnson and The Moderna Museet Collection, 30 Sep 2023 – 8 Sep 2024, Moderna Museet, Stockholm.

Forthcoming solo exhibition at Long Museum, Shanghai in 2024.
