Artist Talk with Jade Hoyer

Come join us for a fascinating talk about the work and practice of mixed-media artist Jade Hoyer.

Jade Hoyer is an Assistant Professor of Art at Metropolitan State University of Denver in Denver, Colorado. She has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and Philippine Women’s University. Jade has been recognized by organizations such as the Minnesota State Arts Board (St. Paul, MN), the Denver Art Museum (Denver, CO), and the Cultural Center of the Philippines (Manila, Philippines), and she has also held leadership positions on international print organizations including SGC International and the Association of Print Scholars.

From the artist’s statement:

“Influenced by a professional career promoting access to education and my own background as a biracial Filipina-American, my work broadly addresses social issues. Using a combination of media combination with media including printmaking, installation, and social practice, I examine social systems concerning race, privilege, and intersectionality. By utilizing the visual language associated with order, such as charts, color-coding, and symbols, I refer to and question greater social systems. Art is both my means of making sense of the world, and my means to address and change it.”
