Guest Artist Lecture and Exhibition with James Johnson
The Shallow Habit of Seeing by James Johnson will run Jan. 23 to Feb. 27, in the York College Galleries, Wolf Hall. An Artist Lecture, “Objects for Projection,” will be 5:30 p.m. Jan. 23, in DeMeester Recital Hall, Wolf Hall.
Born in Syracuse, N.Y., James Johnson’s art encompasses installation, sculpture, and photography and makes reference to architecture and issues surrounding representation, economics, and power. He is influenced by Conceptual Art and Minimalism. Combining digital fabrication, woodworking, photography, and informed by considering recent trends in philosophy and economics, Johnson is crafting objects that address basic assumptions about image-making conventions by considering minute details of his practice and materials.
Gallery Hours are: Monday, Tuesday, Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Wednesday, Thursday, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
