Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Sky Hopinka, who was born and raised in Ferndale, Washington, is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation/Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians. His video, photo, and text work centers around personal positions of Indigenous homeland and landscape, designs of language as containers of culture expressed through personal, documentary, and nonfiction forms of media.
Hopinka’s work was included in the 2017 Whitney Biennial and Cosmopolis #2 and has been screened at Sundance, Punto de Vista, and the New York Film Festival. He has had solo exhibitions at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College and most recently at LUMA in Arles, France and fellowships at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, Art Matters, and the Guggenheim Foundation. In the fall of 2022, Hopinka received a MacArthur Fellowship for his work as a visual artist and filmmaker.
Organized by the Department of Art and Art History. Supported by the UC Davis College of Letters and Science and co-sponsored by the Manetti Shrem Museum.
