Open Studio: Pete Hocking

  • The Hawthorne Barn 29 Miller Hill Road Provincetown, MA, 02657 United States (map)

NOTE FROM TWENTY SUMMERS: We regret to inform you that Jenna Wortham will no longer be able to join us in Provincetown for her scheduled residency this week. We will instead be hosting local artist Pete Hocking for a residency.

Pete Hocking is a visual artist and writer based in Provincetown, MA. His work is concerned with personal narrative, place, poetics, and political consciousness. Pete will spend his residency in the Barn working on a series of new works based on walks that he has taken this spring on the Atlantic side of the Outer Capeā€”primarily in Provincetown and Truro, which he will discuss and share at his Open Studio.

His other preoccupations include Progressive Education and arts pedagogy; American Studies; Queer Theory; ecology and sustainable systems; the public engagement of artists; and documentary practice. He teaches at Goddard College in the Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts program and in the Division of Liberal Arts at Rhode Island School of Design.  Previously he was director of Rhode Island School of Design's Office of Public Engagement (2007-2011), and Associate Dean of the College and Director of the Swearer Center for Public Service at Brown University (1988-2005). He's a founding board chair of the Provincetown Commons, an economic development center for the arts and creative economy.  He's represented by Four Eleven Gallery in Provincetown, MA.
