Art Exhibition Opens Concordia’s Academic Year


Concordia College opens the academic year with an art exhibition, “Mixtape: Landscape,” Tuesday, Aug. 29-Tuesday, Oct. 3. A public reception will be from 4-5:30 p.m. Aug. 29 with artist remarks at 4:30 p.m.

Mixtape: Landscape is a new survey featuring various types of photography, including darkroom experiments, video, and large-scale color prints that focus on landscape, place, and autobiography. Much of the work was created during artist residencies in Thailand, Scotland and Sweden.

The artist, Jonathan Johnson, is a photographer and filmmaker whose work explores ideas about place, identity and nature. Autobiography plays a role in Johnson’s work as he often references his mixed-race background, travel and backcountry exploration. Johnson collaborates with composers, writers, poets, designers and fellow artists in his artwork that takes the form of photographic prints, books, films, videos and teaching projects.

Johnson has received several awards and grants and his work has been shown at film festivals and galleries in more than 30 countries. Previously, Johnson was a competitive ski racer and held positions in the music industry and public affairs.
