live dreaming

angela davis johnson is a painter and ritual performance artist concerned with the examining humanity through the lens of black folks.

In the hollerin space, davis johnson conducts live dreaming sessions as a point of connection, investigation, and healing. Live Dreaming is the process of blending meditation, prayer, deep  listening with fine art to explore, examine, and share collective dreams through visual images, performance, and installation.  It is beyond aspirational. It is to imagine and construct a past, present, future that reflects the technologies, history, and beauty of black people, in particular that of black women.

Live dreaming is a research method.

Live dreaming is self discovery.

Live dreaming is reflective.

Live dreaming is spatial.


between i remember and i cry.


 gathering memories. gathering truth. gathering healing.
