What Was Always Yours and Never Lost: Indigenous Experimental Film
Film shorts program curated by filmmaker Sky Hopinka

The short films in this program traverse a wide range of topics dealing directly and indirectly with indigeneity - assertions of identity and presence in the face of and regardless of colonial history and antiquated traditions of anthropology and ethnography. They make space for poetry, for beauty, for movement between cosmological and visceral worlds, sometimes blurring the lines between both. They claim what was always theirs, and celebrate what was never lost. Note that these films include mature content. A conversation with filmmaker and curator Sky Hopinka, a Milwaukee-based filmmaker and member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, will follow the screening.

Join the Friends of the Haggerty for a tour led by Director Susan Longhenry of the visual arts bounty of San Francisco, the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. With the 2016 opening of the remodeled and expanded San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Bay Area has taken itself one step closer to the arts destinations of NYC and London. The newly re-opened SFMOMA, designed by the Norwegian firm Snohetta, is both stunning and understated with total gallery space of 117,000 square feet. In addition to the tour of SFMOMA, the trip features visits to the city’s long-established centers for art, the de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor. Other stops in SF include the Asian Art Museum and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. An afternoon trip to Berkeley and Oakland will feature tours of the University of California Berkeley Art Museum and the Oakland Museum of California. The final full day of the trip includes a tour of the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts at Stanford University, the de Saisset Museum at the University of Santa Clara and a tour of a private collection.
