The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque
We are pleased to collaborate with the Cinematheque to present Native Son (2019), the directorial debut of artist Rashid Johnson. We presented Johnson’s sculptural work, Shea Butter (1970/2017) in our 2017 exhibition A Poet*hical Wager. His new remake of Richard Wright’s acclaimed 1940 novel features many familiar views as Johnson filmed much of it in Cleveland. Following the screening, we will explore the film’s focus on the social dimensions of place and space.
