Rhiannon Vogl profile picRhiannon Vogl is a writer, curator, and PhD candidate in Art History, where her research has been supported by a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholarship (SSHRC). Her writing has been published RACAR JournalThe Brooklyn RailBorder CrossingsC  MagazineMomusBlackFlashCanadian Art; numerous exhibition catalogues; and Art & Place: Site Specific Art of the Americas (Phaidon). Rhiannon was a Northrop Frye Centre Doctoral Fellow in 2023-24. From 2007–2018, Rhiannon worked at the National Gallery of Canada where she advanced from intern to Curatorial Assistant to Associate Curator in the Department of Contemporary Art. Rhiannon’s research focuses on the alternative and underground systems of artist-initiated publishing that art critic Lucy Lippard’s only published novel I See / You Mean circulates within. Rhiannon attends to the mechanisms of alternative feminist publishing models and to the socioeconomic opportunities and constraints they presented. She elucidates Lippard’s role in the initiation of alternative artist-run publishing houses including Chrysalis Press, Printed Matter and New Documents, and traces the broader context of art criticism and art book publishing Lippard participated in. She argues that Lippard’s engagement with alternative publishing processes was entirely enmeshed with novel-writing as art praxis.
