Art Break: Luzene Hill

Thursday, June 1, 2023
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Free for Members or included with Museum admission

Join featured artist Luzene Hill for this month’s Art Break as she leads an informal Gallery discussion about the works in the exhibition, Luzene Hill: Revelate, along with related objects on view in the Museum’s Collection.

Learn more about Hill’s captivating art and hear from the artist about her artistic inspirations and process. Revelate builds upon a legacy of matrilineal culture, where balance/equilibrium was the prevailing philosophy.

This exhibition combines Hill’s use of mylar safety blankets alongside recent drawings. Capes constructed of mylar burst with energy and rustle with subtle sound, the shining material a signifier of care, awareness, displacement, and presence. Though Hill works primarily in sculpture, drawing has increasingly become an essential part of her practice as she seeks to communicate themes of feminine and Indigenous power across her entire body of work. The energy within her drawings extends to the bursts of light reflecting from her capes or the accumulation of materials in other installation works.
