This year, the Yale School of Art will welcome four Hayden Distinguished Fellows to campus. This new fellowship, generously made possible by the Hayden Fund for Art and Ideas, will bring globally recognized leaders in art and the academy to Yale to work with students as teachers, mentors, and critics. The Fellows’ engagement will strengthen a critical link between the Yale School of Art and the international artistic community, as Fellows give public lectures, teach classes, and participate in studio visits and critiques.

HITO STEYERL

Filmmaker and Writer

One of the leading figures in developing her own paradigm that incorporates looking at digital technologies and their impact on tendencies in contemporary art, Hito Steyerl will be in residence at the School of Art in the spring when she will teach classes, present a public lecture, and conduct research for a developing artist project.

Steyerl’s prolific filmmaking and writing occupies a highly discursive position between the fields of art, philosophy and politics, constituting a deep exploration of late capitalism’s social, cultural and financial imaginaries. Her films and lectures have increasingly addressed the presentational context of art, while her writing has circulated widely through publication in both academic and art journals, often online. She has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2016); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain; Artists Space, New York; Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia (2015); Van Abbemuseum, Eidenhoven, The Netherlands; ICA, London, UK; Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Germany (2014); Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (2013); the Art Institute of Chicago; E-flux, New York (2012); Chisenhale Gallery, London, UK (2010); Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2009); and Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2008). Group exhibitions include the German Pavilion, 56th Venice Biennal, Venice, Italy; the Hannover Kunstverein, Hannover, Germany; CAC Vilnius, Vilnius, Lithuania (2015); Cut to Swipe, Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Darknet, Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, Switzerland; Bienal de la Imagen en Movimento, Goethe- Institut Buenos Aires, Argentina (2014); The Way of the Shovel: Art as Archeology, MCA Chicago; Nine Artists, Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis; Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Bergen Triennial, Bergen, Norway; Venice Biennale (2013); Taipei Biennial; Gwangju Biennial (2010); documenta 12, Kassel (2007) and Manifesta 5, San Sebastian (2004).
