Louis Hock's artwork - films, video tapes, and media installations - have been exhibited in solo shows at numerous national and international art institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. To day he is a teacher in San Diego, California.
The centre of his work is to tell the story of the Mexican people living in the south of California. In that way his work can be looked at as documentary films, but they always have a twisted angel to them. In his work he has collaborated with Elizabeth Sisco and David Avalos among others.
