Logan Lecture: Dyani White Hawk

2023 MacArthur Fellow Dyani White Hawk (Si?á??u Lakota) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Minneapolis. Her practice, strongly rooted in painting and beadwork, extends into sculpture, installation, video, and performance, reflecting upon cross-cultural experiences through the amalgamation of influences from Lakota and Euro-American abstraction.

Join Rory Padeken, Vicki and Kent Logan Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, in conversation with Dyani White Hawk about her dynamic practice of bringing Indigenous traditions of abstraction into a contemporary context. White Hawk’s Untitled (Quiet Strength, II) (2017) is currently on view in the Hamilton building on the fourth floor.

This lecture is presented jointly by the departments of Modern and Contemporary Art and Native Arts.

Since 2007, the Logan Lecture Series at the Denver Art Museum has presented talks by over 120 contemporary artists. Organized by the Modern and Contemporary Art department, the series is made possible through the generous support of Vicki and Kent Logan.

Spring Course 2024: Why Do We Art? Exploring the Role Art Plays in Our Lives

We take art for granted but what purposes does it serve? What roles does it play in our lives and societies and, if these have changed over time, how? In this three-session course, join Giulia Bernardini, art historian and founder of art travel company Wonderfeast, to explore the place art occupies in our world and what the questions we ask about it ultimately tell us about ourselves. With the gallery as our playground, optional reading and viewing materials at hand, and lively group discussion, this participatory experience will leave attendees with a new perspective on the question: Why Do We Art?

Giulia Bernardini holds master’s degrees in art history and in museum studies and is a regular guest lecturer on Italian Renaissance and Baroque art as well as the Parisian Belle Époque. She is the founder of Wonderfeast, a boutique art travel company that specializes in unforgettable on-site seminars in her native Europe for small groups of inquisitive art-, food-, and culture-lovers.
