Lecture

Candice Hopkins
– International Curator Lecture

Hear internationally respected Canadian writer and curator Candice Hopkins (Tlingit), Curatorial Resident at the National Gallery of Canada as she speaks about the ground-breaking exhibition Sakahàn: International Indigenous Art. Hopkins will be introduced by Hetti Perkins, Artistic Director of Corroboree Festival.

Candice Hopkins (b. 1977 Whitehorse Yukon, Canada, lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico) has held curatorial positions at the National Gallery of Canada, the Western Front, and the Walter Phillips Gallery at The Banff Centre. She received her MA from the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College. Hopkins’ writings on history, art, and vernacular architecture have been published by MIT Press, BlackDog Publishing, Fillip, the National Museum of the American Indian, among others, and she has lectured widely including at the Witte de With, Tate Modern, Artists Space, and the Dakar Biennale. In 2012 Hopkins presented a keynote lecture on the “sovereign imagination” for dOCUMENTA (13). Recent curatorial projects include Before The Internet: Networks and Art at Western Front, Close Encounters: The Next 500 Years, a multi-site exhibition in Winnipeg, and Sakahàn: International Indigenous Art at the National Gallery of Canada. Hopkins is the co-curator of Unsettled Landscapes, the first in SITE Santa Fe’s newly reimagined biennial exhibitions focused on new art from the Americas, opening July 2014.
