Biography:

Daniel Arcand is a first year PhD student in Art Theory, and Criticism at UCSD. In 2018 he received a MA from the University of York in Art History with a concentration in Modern and Contemporary Art, focusing on the use of the print in the political magazine in the late 19th-early 20th century, which culminated in a dissertation entitled: The Masses, Print Culture, and the Spectacle of Modernism in The Twentieth Century City. In 2017 he received an MFA from Goldsmiths University in Fine Arts Practice, where his research explored the visualization of the everyday, looking at the production of domestic life and the relationship of anxiety to the modern social world. His current research is working to build a theoretical construct of everyday life during the interwar period in the United States, looking at both the production of the art object and political culture and the sociality which develops as a result of the representation of working-class life.
