Opening reception Friday, January 10, 2020 5-7 pm
Angela Davis Johnson creates paintings, public art installations, and ritual performances to examine the technologies of black people, in particular black women/femme. She merges art and contemplative practices to generate works that bring personal and communal visioning around ending poverty, displacement, and state sanctioned violence. Davis Johnson incorporates body movement and sound alongside her vibrant narrative paintings which consist of portraits created with paint, scrap paper, found objects, and fabric.
