Welcome to the website of Kayleigh C. Perkov, PhD
I am the Assistant Curator at the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at the University of California, Davis, and a member of the editorial board for The Journal of Modern Craft.
I received my PhD from the Department of Visual Studies at the University of California, Irvine, where I studied contemporary art through the lens of craft, technology, and feminist inquiry. My dissertation “Giving Form to Feedback: Craft and Technology circa 1968-1974” historicizes current movements in digital fabrication by examining craft objects that synthesize handmaking and emergent technology.
My research has been generously supported by a predoctoral fellowship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design, and the Newkirk Center for Science and Society.
