Message to Our Folks is the first major museum solo exhibition of New York–based artist Rashid Johnson, who turns wood, mirrors, tiles, rugs, CB radios, shea butter, plants and other ordinary items, into art that "explores the complexities and contradictions of black identity in a practice that is rooted in his individual experience." Johnson considers his practice of incorporating objects from his childhood as "hijacking the domestic." The exhibition opens 6-9 p.m. Sept. 6 and runs through Nov. 4. Admission to the opening, which includes beer, wine and entertainment, is $10 for non-MAM members. RSVP with an e-mail to RSVP@miamiartmuseum.org.
