Dani Lamorte is a Tucson-based artist working in performance, video, and photography. He has performed and shown work at the Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh), University of Arizona Museum of Art (Tucson), Human Resources (Los Angeles), Whippersnapper Gallery (Toronto), Studio Beluga (Montreal), and Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh). Dani's recent writing has been featured in Journal of Critical Library & Information Studies, Edge Effects, Sundog Lit, Smithsonian Collections Blog, and Cactus Heart. Since 2012, Dani has performed as 'Maria Denolt,' a self-titled art critic, lecturer, and 'lofty person.' Through guerrilla tours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, short video tours of exhibitions, and a one-minute podcast series, Maria humorously mixes art fact with art fiction to level critiques of both museums and their detractors. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics from the University of Pittsburgh, and a Master of Arts degree in Library & Information Science from the University of Arizona.
