Angela Washko

Angela Washko is an artist and facilitator devoted to mobilizing communities and creating new forums for discussions of feminism where they do not exist. Her practice is research-based, employing data and archiving strategies as storytelling tools to create prototypes for actions by others. Intentionally misusing software, Washko attempts to intervene on public opinion regarding proper etiquette, appropriate lifestyle choices, limited gender designations, and encourages a re-thinking of how we establish US and THEM.

A recent recipient of The Franklin Furnace Fund Grant, The Terminal Award, and the Danish International Visiting Artist Grant, Washko's practice has been written about by Time Magazine, The Guardian (UK), ARTnews, VICE, Hyperallergic, Rhizome, the New York Times, The Creator's Project, Digicult, Bad At Sports and more. Her projects have been exhibited nationally and internationally including shows at the Biennial of the Americas (Denver), MOD: Monitor Digital (Guadalajara, Mexico), Moving Image Art Fair (London and NYC), K11 Concepts (Shanghai, China), Interaccess (Toronto, Canada), the Rotterdam International Film Festival, ICA Boston and Momenta Art (NYC) to name a few. She also is really happy about her radio show with bff Ann Hirsch in New York City - A CUPS!
