Grant Johnson

Grant Klarich Johnson is a PhD candidate in art history at the University of Southern California. Interested in international artistic trajectories and aesthetic exchanges, his research considers twentieth and twenty-first century art, craft, textiles, and fashion. His dissertation, Sheila Hicks: Weaving to the World, presents the first monographic study of the prolific weaver and contemporary artist. This work has been supported by a Jane and Morgan Whitney Fellowship at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he contributed to a reinstallation of the permanent collection, and a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellowship at The Whitney Museum of American Art, where he has traced new itineraries through the permanent collection in remote programs such as “Queer Belonging,” “Portable Landscapes,” and “Domestic Aesthetics,” designed in response to Covid-19. In 2018, he produced a symposium inspired by the work of Senga Nengudi with the USC Fisher Museum of Art and the California African American Museum. In 2016, he curated “20/20 Accelerando,” a new film installation and performance by Lita Albuquerque for the Fisher. His writing has appeared in Artforum, Frieze, and The Brooklyn Rail among other publications, and catalogues including With Pleasure: Pattern and Decoration in American Art, 1972-1985 and Emily Gernild, Black Lemons. He holds a BA from Kenyon College, where he majored in studio art and English, and worked for The Kenyon Review.
