Questioning the Past

Bethany Johns is a professor and graphic design graduate program director at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence, Rhode Island. She designs books and publications for art museums including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the International Center of Photography, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Dia Center for the Arts, and for various publishers, foundations, galleries, and individual artists. Her research and teaching center on graphic design inquiry as an agent of knowledge production, using archives, collections, images, texts, and data as the elements for constructing visual narratives across media. Her work investigates the relations and effects of recursive, looping, and episodic histories—feminist, economic, institutional, and political—that engage the past, present, and speculative future(s).
