Art, Museums

Video, photography, and calligrams (text arranged to form an image that illustrates the words’ theme or meaning) are deployed in artist and filmmaker Sky Hopinka’s work, helping to articulate personal memories and the cultural aspirations of his people. A member of the Ho-Chunk Nation/Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians, Hopinka anchors his exhibition with two videos, Cloudless Blue Egress of Summer and Lore. The pieces tell Indigenous histories of Fort Marion, Florida, a prison during the Seminole Wars (1830s) and Indian Wars (late 1880s). Other works include small photographs in which Hopinka interlaces poetry and image.
