Rashaun Rucker's Solo Exhibition at MOCAD Reflects on Relationships, Communities That Impacted His Journey
Current Print Media student, Rashaun Rucker, opened his first solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) earlier this month. Rashaun Rucker: Relief From the Heat features his ruminations on intergenerational identity and community sustained within the Black Church where he was born and raised in the America South. Now Detroit-based, Rucker is nationally recognized for his printmaking and draftsman work, and Relief From the Heat marks a return to his roots as a photojournalist, which initially brought him to the Midwest via a job at the Detroit Free Press.
Rashaun Rucker: Relief From the Heat is open through March 25, 2023.
Rashaun Rucker is a current Gilbert Fellow, pursuing his Master of Fine Arts at Cranbrook Academy of Art.
