Sky Hopinka, a 2017 Nohl Fellow in the Emerging category, is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and a descendant of the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians. His videos use figures and text that are layered and dense in image and sound; those tactics are used to question the simple movements and complications of knowledge, access, and artifact.  His talk will consider the production of these videos and their influences using selections from his work, as well as adjacent writings, responses, and problems around their existence. 

 

The Haggerty Museum of Art's exhibitions and programs are free and open to the public.
