Dee Hibbert-Jones: Art, Film, & the Public

Academy Award nominated, Emmy award winning, Guggenheim Fellow, filmmaker, and artist Dee Hibbert-Jones will discuss her creative work in installation, public art, and documentary film examining power and politics: how people manage and who gets heard. Her work explores diverse subjects from land use and wasted resources, to criminal justice and indigent rights: examining what is considered valuable and who is dismissed as valueless. Hibbert-Jones will show examples of her current work and discuss its relevance in relation to notions of the public, public art, and the politics of public space. Hibbert-Jones is a professor of Art, digital art, film, and new media at UC Santa Cruz.
