Visiting Artist | 2020-21
Archive Residency 2020-21
MANCC is currently engaged with Emily Johnson to design the Center’s first archive residency in support of her goals for utilizing the documentation material that Johnson has accumulated (video, photo, interviews, ephemera, etc.) through seven MANCC residencies since 2009. These creative process residencies helped develop four works by the artist, including The Thank You Bar, Niicugni (Listen), SHORE, and Then a Cunning Voice and a Night We Spend Gazing at Stars. Johnson will be working closely with her invited collaborators, Indigenous archivists/librarians Nicole Wallace and Colette Montoya-Sloan, together with MANCC’s Media Specialist through 2021. Details on Johnson’s goals, residency activities, and other pertinent information will be posted and updated as the residency evolves.
This inaugural archival residency is funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
