Elyse Johnson is a queer, mixed American artist based in New York. Johnson uses performance and video to investigate gender, spectacle, and power. Through absurdist gestures and acts of labor that go unanswered, Johnson explores the nature of femme protagonism and the relationship between feminine individuation and violence. Johnson is a 2015 recipient of the Wilder Traveling Scholarship Grant and current MFA student at Parsons School of Design.
