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.

Logan Lecture: Sandra Monterroso

Through video performances and woven works, Sandra Monterroso explores the dynamics of Indigenous identity and culture in a postcolonial world. Monterroso specifically considers women’s work and sacrifice in a post-civil war Guatemala. An artist of Maya Q’eqchi descent, her practice is further informed by Maya cosmology and incorporates her understanding of the world as it is now, highly interconnected and spiritual.

Join Victoria I. Lyall, the Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Arts of the Ancient Americas, in conversation with Sandra Monterroso about her practice. Monterroso’s work, Colorando las Hebras (2011) and Decolorando las Hebras (2011), are currently on view in the Martin building on the fourth floor.

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

Logan Lecture: Sandra Vásquez de la Horra

Raised in a Catholic family, Berlin-based artist Sandra Vásquez de la Horra grew up in Chile during the repressive Pinochet regime. Ideas of healing and deconstructing taboos course throughout her drawing practice, which feature recurring motifs such as words, mountains, volcanoes, and silhouettes of human bodies. Known for her articulate poetry and artistic experimentation with words, Vásquez de la Horra creates artworks that move between the absurd and the affirmation of affection and pleasure.

Join Raphael Fonseca, curator of modern and contemporary Latin American Art, in conversation with Sandra Vásquez de la Horra about her practice and her solo exhibition The Awake Volcanoes at the DAM. Vásquez de la Horra’s Las cordilleras encontradas (The found Mountain Ranges)is currently on view on level 3 of the Hamilton Building.

This lecture is presented jointly by the departments of Latin American Art and Modern and Contemporary Art.
