Speaker: Dakota Hoska
Assistant Curator of Native Arts at the Denver Art Museum
This lecture will explore new trends in curating Indigenous Arts through an examination of the recent reinstallation of the Indigenous Arts of North America galleries at the Denver Art Museum. Focusing on key artworks and the artists who made them and on collaborations with community members, Dakota Hoska will shear how her team works to dispel preconceived expectations for the creation and display of Native American artworks. She will relate how Inigenous people fit into non-Native institutions and review artists whose work is contributing to broader national and international discussions.
Hoska is an enrolled member of the Oglála Lakȟóta Nation, Pine Ridge (Wounded Knee). She completed her MA in Art History, focusing on Native American Art History, at the University of St. Thomas. She completed Dakhóta language classes at the University of Minnesota, and received her BFA in Drawing and Painting from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Hoska’s curatorial work allows her to pursue her passions of working closely with her Native community while being continually surrounded by and learning about beautiful artwork.
