From April 27th, 2022 through September 25th, 2022, the Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo presents American artist Rashid Johnson’s exhibition “Plateaus”.

American artist Rashid Johnson’s work echoes his culture and highly diverse influences, drawing on both American history and African history, politics, and philosophy. This diversity is reflected in the wide range of materials he uses, including wax, wood, steel, copper, shea butter, ceramics, as well as found objects such as books, vinyl LPs, videotapes, plants and walkie-talkies. Johnson challenges cultural, personal and racial identity, mixing material and historical references. Still, his works are not necessarily demonstrative – they are to be seen as puzzles in which materials, figures and objects work to express emotional states.

Unveiled for the first time in Japan, Plateaus (2014) is the first piece in a series of installations. With this emblematic work which belongs to the Collection, Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo is pleased to highlight the oeuvre of this key artist within the framework of the “Hors-les-murs” program of the Fondation Louis Vuitton.
