Join artist Sky Hopinka and The Green Gallery for a launch and book signing of a new publication, produced in conjunction with an exhibition of Sky Hopinka's work at the Poor Farm, Manawa, WI, 2019-2020.  The exhibition featured Hopinka’s videos from the past six years, and the book includes texts by Sky Hopinka, Michelle Grabner Carl Bogner with Oliver James Moon, Lindsay Nixon, Michael Rakowitz, John Riepenhoff, Jackie Wang, Julie Niemi, and Almudena Escobar López. 

Sky Hopinka is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation and a Pechanga descendent. He was born and raised in Washington State and Southern California, and spent a number of years in Portland, Oregon and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In Portland he studied and taught chinuk wawa, a language indigenous to the Lower Columbia River Basin and first began making films. His video work centers around personal positions of Indigenous homeland and landscape, designs of language as containers of culture, and the play between the known and the unknowable.
