Dana Hoey is a feminist artist who has exhibited and taught since 1996.  She works in photography and video, but appreciates working with artists of all genres.  She is represented by Petzel Gallery, NY, and has presented solo museum exhibits at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture at the University of Maryland, and The University Art Museum at the University at Albany, NY. Currently she has a large video installation “Fighters” as part of “Photography in the Expanded Field” at MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA.  She was professor at Columbia School of Art from 2001 to 2007, and currently is visiting artist at The Cooper Union, NYC and Bard College MFA program.  Three books are available on her work, “The Phantom Sex” with essay by Johanna Burton, “Experiments in Primitive Living”, with essay by Maurice Berger, and “Profane Waste” in collaboration with the writer Gretchen Rubin.  The persistent questions in her work regard representation, beauty and the possibility of political art.

Residency Statement

I’ve recently found new energy through working with trained fighters to imagine a new sphere of behavior for “women” (a term rightfully currently in flux).  I’d be very interested in working with performers, dancers, fighters, feminist artists, genderqueer artists, political artists generally, and people whose work has nothing to do with feminism but who see physical activity as core to their practice.  I usually best serve other artists through studio visits, and I am also good at inciting group discussion so that the Associate Artists will leave with a larger group of friends and colleagues.  Rather than passively wait for inspiration, I like to strike a balance between doing something together (for example presenting biggest inspirations, taking a trip, collaborating or even training together) with quiet time to focus in the studio.
