Scott Hocking lives and works in Detroit. He creates site-specific sculptural installations and photography projects, often using found materials and abandoned locations. Inspired by anything from ancient mythologies to current events, his installations focus on transformation, ephemerality, chance, and discovering beauty through the cycles of nature. His artwork has been exhibited internationally in some of the world’s finest institutions including the Detroit Institute of Arts, the School of the Art Institute Chicago, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, the Mattress Factory Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the Van Abbemuseum, and Kunsthalle Wien. He has received multiple awards, including a Kresge Fellowship and a Knight Foundation Challenge Grant, as well as residency grants in France, Iceland, Australia, Canada, Brazil, and throughout the United States. He is represented by Susanne Hilberry Gallery.

With support from the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA), Institute for the Humanities, and the Susanne Hilberry Gallery.
