Liv Monique Johnson
"Suspension" exhibition on view until February 27, 2022
"Suspension" is an immersive print installation which invites the viewer to explore an outcropping of wilderness where the weird may take place. Screenprinted elements are combined with a variety of materials to create a lush setting of colorful foliage which fills the space. This environment culminates in a suspended moment; a focal point of ultimate potential. Surrounded by abundance this core allows for a quiet confrontation with the unknown.

JADE WALKER: REWEAVE 2021
Mire + Mend outdoors
On View: Saturday, June 9 to Sunday, October 24, 2021
The Elisabet Ney Museum is proud to present “Reweave: 2021,” an exhibition of works indoors and outdoors by Austin artist Jade Walker. The show consisting of two parts: Mire + Mend, which is outside the Elisabet Ney Museum, on its grounds; and Birdsong, located inside the Museum. There is also a virtual component, found here. Intended to reflect community bonds through intersections in fabric and weaving, Reweaving refers to the art of repairing damage to a garment in a virtually invisible way by hand weaving new material and replicating the garments original structure as closely as possible. Both Mire + Mend and Birdsong utilize similar weaving structures but one asks others to bring their own materials and take part in a communal fashion to mend while the other advocates observation and action through other means. Together these works create the overall project, Reweave: 2021.
In SUFFRAGE NOW, the Elisabet Ney Museum asked contemporary women photographers to share photos that comment on the Centennial of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment. The photos were selected by a preeminent jury of curators, photo editors, photographers and artists. Photos are accompanied by commentary by the photographers. The exhibition is ALL online.
