Danielle Hogan is an artist, educator and practice-led researcher with a Ph.D. in the area visual art, and women & gender.
She is the founding director of the Gynocratic Art Gallery, a former board member at Open Space Art Society in Victoria BC, and alumnus instructor from the Vancouver Island School of Art. Recent presentations of her research have taken place at the Banff Center for the Arts (UAAC, ’17), in Australia at the International Society for Education through Art’s World Congress (’14), and at Concordia University as part of National Art Education Association (’13). She earned a diploma in fine craft from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design (’95), her BFA from Emily Carr University (’00), and her MFA from the University of Victoria (’03).
She intends to rewrite her dissertation Just Making It: The Stain of Femaffect on Fiber in Art for publishing in book form. Danielle coined the term Femaffect during this study. The new term speaks to the unique relationship between affect theory, and objects or emotions that have been feminized as a result of sexist ideologies. As a whole (and aside from her ongoing quest to experience the world’s greatest latte…) Danielle’s research embraces the fields of craft in contemporary art, intersection feminist possibilities of/and feminist theory regarding craft media & their processes, Craftivism, DIY culture, Making pedagogies.
