Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: John Hitchcock
November 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Indigenous printmaker John Hitchcock uses the print medium with its long history of social and political commentary to explore relationships of community, land, and culture. Hitchcock’s works on paper and multimedia installation consists of prints and moving images that mediate the trauma of war and the fragility of life. Images of U.S. military weaponry are combined with mythological hybrid creatures from the Wichita Mountains of western Oklahoma to explore notions of assimilation and control. Hitchcock is a Professor of Printmaking in the Art Department and Associate Dean for the Arts in the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
