Fright Privilege is a satirical multimedia Haunted (Open) House. Intimate walk-throughs led by “Dakota”, a real estate agent eager to guide you through a horror show of neurotic fears plaguing progressive-minded urbanites, including the looming specter of Decreased Property Values Due To Neighborhood Disrepair, falling victim to Unfair Characterizations On The Internet, losing the White Demographic Majority, consuming Genetically Modified Vegetables, and actually having to confront an angry and articulate Displaced Former Tenant.

Groups of 10 people will enter each hour, for this intimate walk-through performance. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time.

Cast includes: Sommer Branham, Jessica Jean Jardine, Jason Underhill, Peter De Remier and more, along with video art by Trulee Hall, and a special performance by Raquel Bell.

SONG OF YOURSELVES Created and Performed by John P. Hogan As we enter the Twilight of the American White Male, join John P.Hogan for an Irish Wake of sorts. Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, Clint Eastwood's iconic "Chair Piece", and the fragmented micromanagement of the self and others through art, poetry and bureaucracy will all come under consideration. Bring your barbaric yawp, for festivities will include Contextually Appropriate Pop Songs Sung By The Audience, and other spectacular delights yet to be determined SONG OF YOURSELVES May 24, 25 8pm Automata 504 Chung King Court Los Angeles, CA 90012 $15 General, $12 Members/Students/Seniors

dialoguesofpracticewebThis Thursday, March 14th, I will be showing some new drawings and
performing at the opening of Dialogues of Practice, Part 1, an
exhibition curated by Kristi Lippire.

Dialogues of Practice, Part 1
West Los Angeles College Gallery
9000 Overland Ave., Culver City, 90230
March 14th – April 25th
Opening Reception March 14th 7-9 pm.

Dialogues of Practice pairs ten L.A. artists with ten artists from the
First Street Gallery Art Center, a Claremont organization “founded on
the proposition that human potential for creativity and artistic
expression is not limited by physical or intellectual disabilities.”
Basically, the L.A. artists were asked to make work in response to
work made by artists from First Street, or to work in collaboration
with those artists.   It’s an interesting show with excellent artists,
bringing attention to a truly exceptional program.  I’m very happy to
be a part of it.

I will be performing at the opening on Thursday night, which runs from
7-9pm.  Estimated performance time: 8pm.
Hope to see you there!

My band from the early aughts, The Tokeleys, is featured as the intro and outro music on The Marc and Tom Show.  The Marc and Tom show is a conversation between two greats of comedy broadcasting and podcasting: Marc Maron of WTF with Marc Maron, and Tom Scharpling of the Best Show on WFMU!  I couldn’t be more proud to be marginally involved with this project.  The song used is “Mausoleum”, and you can check it out and download for free (as part of the “Sons of Horus” album) in the Audio section of this site.

Welcome to the new John Hogan Studio site. 

There are videos, images, and music streams, and I’m sure to add more as time goes on.  It even comes pre-loaded with eleven posts backdated by five months.  Please explore and enjoy.

Hi. I was a Guest Blogger for Art 21. This is the photo I gave them to use.

I Guest Blogged for Art 21 not too long ago. I wrote about my initiation into postmodern notions of the abject via Chris Elliott’s Get A Life, iconoclastic self-published ’50’s art critic Theodore L. Shaw as related to Marina Abramovic, Paul McCarthy as related to Tim & Eric, Disney’s Hall of Presidents and reactionary painter Jon McNaughton, the life’s work of subcultural icon Ian Svenonious, and Knowledges at Mount Wilson Observatory.
