STNDRD Presents: Danielle McCoy — In memory of…
More information forthcoming.
Danielle McCoy is an artist, mother, educator, writer, co-creator of Artist In The Room and one half of WORK/PLAY. McCoy is a self-taught conceptual artist that intertwines printmaking techniques with sewing, quilt-making and hand-dyed textiles into her interdisciplinary art practice. By aiming to promote strength, self-care and togetherness among women of color, her work explores gender and identity by addressing issues rooted in race and inequality in America. Through small run publications, installation pieces, site-specific works and programming, her practice serves to build safe spaces of belonging by incorporating spirituality and intentionality into her work.
Danielle McCoy’s work has been collected privately and she continues to exhibit locally and nationally. She has developed and organized art exhibitions, sat on numerous group panels, given lectures, and offered workshops in collaboration with the LEAP Middle School Intensive at the Contemporary Arts Museum St. Louis as well as The Saint Louis Art Museum. Residencies include The Luminary in St. Louis, ACRE in Wisconsin, Forest Park Forever in St. Louis, and forthcoming Santa Fe Art Institute in Sante Fe, NM. Danielle continues to teach, work as a studio artist, and is involved in the local arts community.
