Erin Johnson

Erin Johnson is an interdisciplinary artist who uses video, sound, performance, and social practice to explore the blurred lines between rehearsal and performance; real and imagined landscapes and borders; and perception, memory, and interpretation. Her practice – which revolves around questions of gender, sexuality, ecology, and disaster – evidences a fundamental situationality, shape-shifting depending on collaborator, topic, and means at hand. Johnson’s work has been exhibited at museums and galleries such as Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, Vox Populi, HERE Arts Center, New Mexico State University, Pelican Bomb, Southern Exposure, Root Division, 1708 Gallery, Cornell University, ZERO1 Biennial, Berkeley Art Museum, Kala Art Institute, and the Asheville Art Museum. She holds a MFA and Certificate in New Media from U.C. Berkeley and is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Digital Media at Bowdoin College.
