Remnants by Loni Johnson at Locust Projects

Congratulations to artist & activist Loni Johnson who will be unveiling her latest installation, Remnants at Locust Projects on September 11! Johnson exhibited at WAAM recently with artist Chire Regans, and we journeyed into the interior landscapes of her sketchbooks, drawings to understand how community, memory, and ancestry are an integral part of her art practice.

Chire Regans at the Bakehouse Arts Complex

A Reflection of the Times, by Chire “VantaBlack” Regans, is a memorial exhibition of portraiture that underscores the ways in which activist art exists as a site of resistance and embodies a social justice framework. Here, the artist creates a space for collective remembering and healing for families and the community. WAAM is honored to curate this exhibition in collaboration with Commissioner and the BAC. Special thanks to Dejha Carrington, Laura Novoa, Cathy Leff, and last but not least, to Chire Regans, who inspires us with her truth-telling.
