DESCRIPTION

Within his most recent projects begun in 2005, artist Jay Mark Johnson produces photographic images that challenge the norms of perception. Throughout his career, in work spanning the disciplines of drawing and painting, printmaking, filmmaking, performance, architecture, and photography, he has made visible the intersection of human nature and society.

Johnson holds a Master of Architecture degree from Tulane University in New Orleans. He studied and worked at the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York City. During the late 1970s and the early 1980s, his associations with architects Peter Eisenman, Rem Koolhaas, Aldo Rossi, Kenneth Frampton, Buckminster Fuller and Lebbeus Woods enabled him to explore questions of representation and time in both built and conceptual architecture.  In the late 1990s, the artist returned to graduate studies in Linguistic and Biological Anthropology at UCLA. Works of his are in the permanent collections of the MOMA in New York, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as the Collection Frederick R. Weisman, Los Angeles, California, the Langen Foundation, Hombroich, Germany and the Alison and Peter W. Klein Museum Kunstwerk Collection, Eberdingen, Germany.

Please join us for this terrific series. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $15 (students $10) and the series can be purchased in advance through the Julia Dean Photo Workshops for $35
