Hope Hutman

Hope Hutman (She/Her/They) is an artist, activist, and teacher living in Oakland, CA.   Using everyday technology,  live stream video, performance and installation, their interdisciplinary practice explores what happens to human autonomy when reality is constructed by brands and government agencies who can predict our choices.  Their work assumes that culture creates meaning and that what we make, see, like and engage with shapes what we believe in and the way we understand the world. Hutman’s artwork, both collaborative and individually created, has been shown at the Williamstown Theater Festival, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, SF Fringe Festival, and on Twitch.TV.  Her installation, (Not So) Silent Movie, is part of the NCSU Hunt Library permanent collection.
