Luzene Hill

Luzene Hill is a multimedia artist, best known for socially engaged conceptual installations, which incorporate performance/action. Her work reflects interdisciplinary scholarship in visual art, women’s studies, and Native American culture—topics that are integral to her background and personal journey. Through work informed by pre-contact culture of the Americas, Hill advocates for Indigenous sovereignty—linguistic, cultural, and personal sovereignty. These concepts form the basis of her installations, performances, drawings, and artist’s books. Her drawings address vulnerability and resilience viewed through both a personal and cultural lens. Recent work, employing indigenous goddess motifs, asserts female agency and challenges phallocentric hierarchies. An enrolled member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, Hill lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Canada, Russia, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Her awards include the 2019 Ucross Fellowship, the 2016 Native Arts and Cultures Foundation Fellowship in Visual Arts, the 2015 Eiteljorg Museum Fellowship, and the 2015 First Peoples Fund Fellowship. Hill’s work is featured in Susan C. Power’s book, Art of the Cherokee: Prehistory to the Present, in Josh MacPhee’s and Rebecca Solnit’s book, Celebrate People’s History: The Poster Book of Resistance and Revolution, and the PBS documentary, Native Art Now!.
