Sale price$ 645

Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper

Rashid’s works reference colonialism, westward expansion, and mythology through the telling of world history, specifically focusing on the 18th century, while remixing global players – African, European, ancient and indigenous peoples – in a process of storytelling and mythmaking. These works are Rashid’s first foray into prints of his original work, and capture small vignettes into his larger narrative. Rashid integrates and retells the past in a way that envisions a very different future outcome. His work makes the viewer question who is telling the stories of history, and what would we see or believe if it was told from another perspective.

“What's interesting is that history is always written by the victor. There's all these different stories, and as a black person or African-American, as you will or whatever, I haven't figured out how I really fit into this history.”
