As a performing artist, Emily Johnson makes contemporary performance works that are infused with her experiences growing up in Alaska. Following PICA’s presentation of her work Niicgugni¬†on June 8th and 9th, Emily will offer a four day workshop sharing her knowledge of the Yup’ik craft of salmon skin sewing, which she learned from Alaskan artist Audrey Armstrong, and used to create lanterns for the Niicugni project. During the workshop,participants will have the opportunity to make their own one-of-a-kind lantern to take home and enjoy a salmon feast on the PICA deck with fellow participants, family and friends.
