July 9, 2023

In celebration of its inaugural edition, Tokyo Gendai will host Umar Rashid’s first talk in Japan. Rashid will be in conversation with cultural studies scholar and artist Hiroki Yamamoto. 

Rashid makes paintings, drawings, sculptures, and textiles that chronicle the grand historical fiction of the Frenglish Empire (1648–1880) that he has been developing for over seventeen years. Each work represents a frozen moment from this parallel world that often recalls our own fraught histories—both canonized and marginalized—with familiar signifiers and iconographies that channel the visual lexicons of hip hop, ancient and modern pop culture, gang and prison life, and revolutionary movements throughout time.

Sunday, July 9 


at PACIFICO Yokohama 2F Annex Hall F206, Yokohama, Japan
