Member Preview: Thursday, November 3, 4–9pm; Opening Celebration: November 4, 2022, 6–9pm

Sky Hopinka’s visually striking and linguistically rich films, photographs, and poetry, explore the layered nature of contemporary Indigenous experience. A member of the Ho-Chunk Nation and descendent of the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians, Hopinka’s personal work teases out legacies of both colonial oppression and Native resistance, illuminating continuities between past and present, the known and unknowable. Sky Hopinka will present a new film by Hopinka. Organized by Lauren Schell Dickens, Rachel Nelson, and Gina Dent as part of Visualizing Abolition, an art initiative of the Institute of the Arts and Sciences at University of California, Santa Cruz and San José Museum of Art.
