Johnson Jesuthason of DHC/ART

Johnson Jesuthason is a familiar face to visitors of the DHC/ART Foundation. Having started out as a security guard, his curiosity for contemporary art has led him to a role that involves conversing with gallery visitors, providing insight and information. I spoke with Johnson about his experience working at the DHC. We also talked about the current exhibition on view, the first retrospective in Canada devoted to artist Joan Jonas.

Airing Thursday May 5th, 2-3pm.
