Lexi Johnson

Lexi Johnson is a graduate student in the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford. Originally from Chicago, Lexi graduated from Princeton University, where she worked with Rachael DeLue and Gayle Salamon on her undergraduate thesis, “Queering George Bellows and the Question of ‘Gay Art’” She focuses on American art history, visual culture, and issues of gender and sexuality, especially re-examining our understanding of modern American art using contemporary feminist and queer theory. Having worked at the Princeton Art Museum, the Whitney Museum, and the Terra Foundation for American Art, Lexi is particularly interested in how the public interacts with works of art and how museums will meet the demands of the 21st century visitor. She is currently at work on a dissertation titled, “Turning the Page: America’s Lesbian Magazines.”
