Lillstreet Art Center’s Photography Department presents DISCOURSE with Daniel Hojnacki…

Discourse is a bi-monthly lecture series featuring local photographic artists followed by a Q&A.

Daniel Hojnacki received his BA in photography from Columbia College Chicago. Hojnacki’s use of photography is driven by material experimentation embodying an investigation into the elusive act of memory. His main sources are the archived image and the domestic forgotten landscape. His practice is persistent on creating works that speak to the inherent role photography plays in how our memories are collected and remembered. Hojnacki has been a youth educator in the Chicago area at After School Matters, Marwen Foundation, and Changing Worlds in Pilsen. Hojnacki’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as The Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago,IL), Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (Milwaukee, WI), Tormenta Gallery (La Plata, Argentina), ‘Untitled’ Art Space (Vancouver, BC), Johalla Projects (Chicago, IL), The Franklin (Chicago, IL) and Chicago Art Department (Chicago,IL). His work has been reviewed and published by Hyperallergic, New City Art, LVL 3 Artist of the week, and Specimen La Revue (Lyon, France). He has been awarded the Community Assistance Arts Program Grant and the Albert P Weisman Award, as well as residencies at Residencia Corazón in La Plata, Argentina and the HATCH Projects at the Chicago Artists Coalition.
