Daniel Arcand



Specializing in politics and cultural production within the United States and Mexico during the late 19th to mid 20th century, Daniel Arcand is a student in the PhD program, Theory and Criticism at the University of California, San Diego. An artist and historian of mural art, print media, and the relations between art and labor, informed by labor history and Marxist theory, Daniel is now working on a dissertation looking at the exchange of art production and aesthetics between Mexican and U.S. art during the 1920s to the 1930s. Along with working on his PhD, Daniel also holds a BA in art education from Salem State University (2015), a MFA in studio practice from Goldsmiths, University of London (2017), and a MA in art history from the University of York (2019).
