Guest Room Digital Residency - Jan 1 - 14, 2k17

Added on by Rin Johnson.

For my time in the guest room, I'll create a VR adventure where two things happen: 1st I will curate a daily VR video or game to be enjoyed on a google cardboard, with the use of a smart phone or within the Youtube browser and the 2nd (taking a page out of the book of Kanye West) I will make a new VR film piece to be dropped every Friday. I'll be in the guest room from the 1st to the 14th with an IRL show going in Austin Texas for the same dates plus a little more :)

Exhibition on Virtual Reality at HeK Basel

Added on by Rin Johnson.

I'm really stoked to be in this show @ HeK Basel: The Unframed World Virtual Reality as artistic medium for the 21st century

With the market launch of technologies suitable for the masses, Virtual Reality experiences a first time large-scale popularity as artistic medium. By means of a headset, the viewer enters a three-dimensional world devoid of the limiting edges of a screen, projection sheet or room. The Unframed World is the first extensive presentation of artistic exploration of the VR medium at the HeK (House of Electronic Arts Basel). The international group exhibit shows works, which bind the virtual environment together with the physical exhibition space.

Satellite Art Fair - Destroy and Conquer - December 1 - 4, Miami Beach

Added on by Rin Johnson.


“[W]hatever they have not pounced on like many eyed birds of prey, does not appear in the language you speak. This is apparent precisely in the intervals that your masters have not been able to fill with their words...[I]n all that which is not a continuation of their discourse, in the zero, the O, the perfect circle that you invent to imprison them and to overthrow them.” 
- Les Guerilleres, Monique Wittig

What if worlds were actually run by women and queer folk? How do we see and materialize the existence of such a reality? In order to defeat the entities we now confront, we require new systems of every kind. We must decide how to rebuild from the ground up, and provide models to celebrate this process. Rin Johnson, Shaina Yang, Sarah Wang, Sessa Englund, Dava Frog Wing and Shanti Latita, provide propositions, celebratory ephemera and meditations for the rebuilding of a society which has been dismantled and has crumbled around their feet. Disclaimer Gallery is proud to present, 'Destroy & Conquer' a 4 day exhibition at Satellite Art Fair in Miami Beach.

Disclaimer Gallery is a gallery run by and for queer and women of color. We are dedicated to sustaining a gallery run by low income people to showcase low income people and otherly marginalized groups. Low income as in low income, zero assets, zero trust funds, zero fucking beer sponsorships. We want this gallery to be a vivid expression of the experimental and non-hierarchical nature of the Silent Barn. We want to embrace our role within a larger organism. We are queer woman and nonbinary people of different racial backgrounds and that is who we will be showcasing. We value representation, accessibility, and fighting dominant power structures within the art world.
