Visiting Artists & Critics Series Lecture: Cannupa Hanska Luger
April 19, 2016 | 7:00 PM
Cannupa Hanska Luger's socially conscious, ceramic-centric and multidisciplinary work tells provocative stories of complex Indigenous identities that hybridize his identity as an American Indian in tandem with global issues. His work has been called "an expertly executed consideration of Native identit(y)" by THE Magazine, and Western Art Collector Magazine wrote that Luger "gives a modern look at ideas of colonization, adaptability and survival as major components to the development of culture."

Luger's lecture is part of the 2016 UCCS Visiting Artists & Critics Series, which aims to foster understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through dialogue and critical conversations. Artists and scholars of national significance are invited to the University of Colorado Colorado Springs campus to present public lectures and meet with UCCS undergraduate students in classes and workshop settings. The Visiting Artists & Critics Series is a collaborative program of the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA), UCCS Visual Arts and Art History (VAPA).
