Larry Johnson

Known for his distinctively mischievous sense of humor as well as his incisive reconsideration of photography’s critical possibilities, Larry Johnson combines text, drawing, painting, graphic design, and animation within a photographic framework characterized by visual clarity, economy, and sharp focus. In Warholian fashion, Johnson often imbues his work with queer desire and dry melancholy as he mines lowbrow registers of American culture, resituating material drawn from such sources as People magazine, pulp fiction, celebrity auto-biographies, Hollywood histories, and advertisements. Sixty photographs made since 1982 feature in the Los Angeles–based artist’s first major survey exhibition in the United States, which is accompanied by a catalogue with essays by curator Russell Ferguson, Lee Edelman, and Esther Leslie, along with a reprint of a 1990 interview by David Rimanelli.
