Lucía Hinojosa Gaxiola & Emily Johnson

The work of Lucía Hinojosa Gaxiola and Emily Johnson is so alive you can almost hear it breathing. From a particular body in a particular place, they reach out, they echolocate, connecting with the deepest elements of a moment and its many histories.

Lucía Hinojosa Gaxiola is an artist, poet, and editor whose work explores the materiality of language, memory, sound ecology, perceptions and boundaries of place, elements of chance and archive. She exhibits and performs in multiple media, leads workshops and co-edits diSONARE, an experimental editorial project from Mexico City, where she is currently based. The Telaraña Circuit (Tender Buttons Press) is her first full-length book.

Emily Johnson is an artist who makes body-based work. She is of the Yup'ik Nation, is a land and water protector and an organizer for justice, sovereignty and well-being. She lives on the Lower East Side of Mannahatta in Lenapehoking.
