Ursula Johnson is a Mi’kmaw artist based on the Eskasoni First Nation in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Her practice fuses traditional ash splint basketry techniques with performance in order to explore Indigenous identity. Johnson has performed and exhibited her work across Canada, and has participated in residencies at the Cape Breton University Art Gallery, University of Edinburgh, Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery, Klondike Institute for Arts and Culture, Debajehmujig Creation Centre, and the Banff Centre. Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery in Halifax is presently touring Mi’kwite’tmn (Do You Remember), a solo exhibition of her work, across Canada. In 2011 Johnson curated a retrospective of her great-grandmother Caroline Gould’s basketry at the Mary E. Black Gallery in Halifax. She has a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (2006).
