Dale Hoyt has been involved in the making, curation, and criticism of media art for over 25 years. His videotapes, drawings, and paintings are in numerous permanent museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, The Anne Frank House in Amsterdamn and the Getty in Los Angeles, CA.
During the '90s he spent several years curating the Video Program at The Kitchen Center in NYC and, in SF, founding C.A.L.F., the Coalition of Artists and Life Forms, the world's first artist-run think tank devoted to researching Biotechnology and its impact on society. This lead him to be commissioned, along with Steve Thurston, the first authorized portrait of CC, the world's first cloned cat.
During the Aughts Hoyt concentrated on teaching in the Bay Area at CCA, 826 Valencia and creating a new body of video shorts again dealing with the themes of man, technology and the natural world. He also recently completed the first official music video of Jazz/Rock pioneer Annette Peacock. "young," which will be premiering tonight.
Dale has also been a licensed fire marshal in the state of New York since 1991.
Annette Peacock has been described as "perhaps the most talented, if not the most enigmatic, female artist in 70's in rock and Jazz". She has worked with such Modern Jazz trailblazers as Albert Ayler, Gary Peacock, Paul Bley , rock icons as David Bowie, Brian Eno, Bill Bruford and hip hop luminaries as Madd Rhymes and Cold Cuts. "young'," is her first authorized music video. "You never forget your first" she has purred."
