Not this Thursday, BUT next Thursday, May 1 at 7 pm, join us in the Walker Art Center Cinema for an Artist Talk between Chris Johanson and Jo Jackson. The next night (Friday, May 2), join us again for Beautiful Losers, the new documentary film (check back soon for a post including more information on this upcoming film!).
Artists Chris Johanson and Jo Jackson emerged from the late ’90s San Francisco-based skater/surf/graffiti scene, known to many as the Mission School, with portfolios of charged, figurative drawings and immersive three-dimensional environments. As a husband and wife team, the two collaborate often on projects, including an installation May 3 to June 1 at the Art of This Gallery (artofthis.net) in Minneapolis. Join the artists at the Walker for a talk about their processes, sources of inspiration and influence, and future projects. Free gallery admission from 5 to 9 pm every Thursday night. Presented by the Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council (WACTAC).
Events take place at the Walker Art Center Cinema
