Gift of the artists and Altman Siegel, San Francisco



Los Angeles based artists Chris Johanson and Johanna Jackson trace their roots
back to the street art skater community formed in San Francisco's Mission District in
the late 1990s. As a husband and wife team, the two collaborate often, most recently
for the Hammer Museum by creating a custom furnishings installation now on view
at the museum. Soft Bench incorporates found wood with an exuberant sense of
color and a playful but sharply critical edge which expresses the artists' strong beliefs
in environmentalism, compassion, and peaceful co-existence.
