Peter Hoffmeister

Visiting Adjunct Professor (Fall 2023)

Peter Hoffmeister (b. 1985, Long Island, New York) uses a variety of materials to create installations, sculpture, and prints that address systems of power in the United States. Often using historical events, places, and documents as a lens through which to understand the present, his work engages prevailing narratives to understand how they have been shaped, and to contemplate how they might be changed. Many of his projects are site-responsive, where the history and architecture of a location guides the evolution of the work.

Peter received a BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology, and an MFA from Hunter College where he has also taught since 2018. Solo projects include Quality Control, NADA House (P.A.D.), Governors Island, NY; Ground Revision, The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum, New York, NY; Bill(board), 14 x 48, New York, NY; and Unpacked, The Morris-Jumel Mansion, New York, NY. Recent residencies and fellowships include the Wave Hill Winter Workspace Program, Bronx, NY; Visible Records, Charlottesville, VA; Lighthouse Works, Fishers Island, NY; and the Bronx Museum’s AIM Fellowship.
