Angela Washko is a New York based artist and facilitator devoted to mobilizing communities and creating new forums for discussions of feminism where they do not exist. These forums are created through actions, interventions, videos, and performances- sometimes in video games. Her most recent project includes the founding of The Council on Gender Sensitivity and Behavioral Awareness In World of Warcraft – earning her the Terminal Award and Grant, a Danish Arts Council Grant, an upcoming fellowship and residency at HIAP in Helsinki Finland, and a solo exhibition at Austin Peay State University. Fond of creating institutions with long names and lofty goals, she also founded The World of Warcraft Psychogeographical Association, another in-game organization which she plans to expand into an artist residency program inside the video game. Washko's community organizing practice has transformed into a curatorial practice as she recently curated "The CONFLUX Festival 2012" at New York University, "Deconstructing the Habit" and "HABIT: A Video Festival" at Spattered Columns in SoHo, "Why Participate?" at Flux Factory, and the lecture series "Expert Oddities" at venues in NYC and Troy, NY. She has participated in artist residencies at Gullkistan (Laugarvatn, Iceland), Contemporary Artist Center at Woodside (Troy, NY), Flux Factory (NYC), and The Fabric Workshop and Museum (Philadephia, PA). Her projects have been written about by Hyperallergic, Rhizome, the New York Times, Digicult, ANIMAL NY and more. She has twitter too: @angelawashko!
