Sky Hopinka: Centers of Somewhere
Friday, October 30, 202012:00 pm – 5:00 pm EDT/GMT-4
The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard), will present Sky Hopinka: Centers of Somewhere, opening October 17, 2020, a focused look at key ideas, preoccupations, and methods in the work of artist and filmmaker Sky Hopinka. Hopinka (born 1984 in Ferndale, Washington) is recognized for video work that centers around personal positions of Indigenous homeland and that explores language as a container of culture.
Centers of Somewhere will present a newly commissioned multichannel work, Here you are before the trees (2020), that will explore Indigenous histories of the Hudson Valley as they are connected to other regions in the United States. Centers of Somewhere will also present a selection of recent videos and photography, including a new series of 16 photographs entitled Breathings (2020) that were shot throughout the United States in 2020, and several short video works by Hopinka, including Dislocation Blues (2017), Jáaji Approx (2015), and I’ll Remember You as You Were, not as What You’ll Become (2016).
