Jessica Hankey + Erin Johnson
Jessica Hankey and Erin Johnson used their time in the SPACE residency developing the installation Both Players Move for the SPACE main gallery.
Jessica Hankey is an interdisciplinary artist whose installations combine modes of video and photographic practices to explore the social life of institutions. Her projects have been funded by the NY State Council on the Arts and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and shown at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, CA, CTRL+SHFT in Oakland, CA, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, and Anthology Film Archives. She has held residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, the Millay Colony, MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists, and the Vermont Studio Center. She is a 2019 Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellow.
Erin Johnson’s single and multi-channel video installations are comprised of footage of site-specific performances that explore how power structures are communicated through relationships, and focus on histories of nationalism and place. Her work has been exhibited at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Berkeley Art Museum, Portland Museum of Art, Rubin Center for the Visual Arts, Vox Populi, and the Telfair Museums. She received an MFA and Certificate in New Media from UC Berkeley in 2013 and attended Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture in 2019.
