Jaleesa Johnston is a mixed media artist who will be performing in our show on 4/13! She holds a BA from Vassar College and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work explores the ruptured and queer existence of the black female body as both subject and object through performance, video, photography, sculpture and collage. Working with her body as material, Jaleesa uses its malleability and symbolism to conjure new narratives that suggest blackness as a liminal site for personal and communal transformation. She is particularly concerned with articulating gestures of the body as a fragmented language that can be used to voice narratives of fugitivity, resistance and freedom. Check out her work on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/276072842 https://vimeo.com/jaleesajohnston We can't wait to see Jaleesa's work at our SPRING FLING show. Get your tickets soon, link in bio.
