Open Lecture by Angela Dufresne


School of Gena Rowland’s, 7 x 11 feet, 2016. Oil canvas

Angela Dufresne is a painter and video maker originally from Connecticut, raised however in the town in Kansas (Olathe-Suburbs) that Dick and Perry stopped in before they killed the Clutters (In Cold Blood) now she is based in Brooklyn. She received the first college degree in her lineage.  Her work articulates non-paranoid, porous ways of being in a world fraught by fear and possession. Through painting, drawing  and performative works, she wields heterotopic narratives that are both non hierarchical and perverse.

She has exhibited at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York, The National Academy of Arts and Letters in NY, The Kemper Museum in Kansas City, Brooklyn Academy of Music in NY, The Aldridge Museum in CT, Sarah Lawrence College in Yonkers, NY, the Rose Museum in Waltham, MA, Mills College in Oakland, CA, Minneapolis School of Art and Design. She is currently Assistant Professor of painting at RISD. The awards and honors Angela has received include 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship, residency at Yaddo, a Purchase Award at The National Academy of Arts and Letters, two fellowships at The Fine Arts Work Center at Provincetown, The Center for the Arts in Sausalito, CA and a Jerome Foundation Fellowship.  She recently had a show at Steve Harvey projects of videos and drawings.
