      Visiting Artist Lecture - Angela Dufresne, Painter

      ANGELA DUFRESNE, PAINTERMonday, Oct 7, 2019, 11:00 am  Visual & Performing Arts Center, room 144WCSU, Westside Campus Free & Open to the PublicLimited Seating Available ANGELA DUFRESNE is a painter 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), and now 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, power, and possession. Through painting, drawing and performative works, she wields heterotopic narratives that are both non-hierarchical and perverse. She had a solo exhibit at the Kemper Museum in Kansas City “Making Scene ‘ in the fall of 2018 and has a solo at the Dorsky Museum at SUNY New Paltz “Just my Type” up through July 14, 2019. She’s exhibited elsewhere at Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York, The National Academy of Arts and Letters in New York, the Kemper Museum in Kansas City, Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York, The Cleveland Institute of Art, The Aldridge Museum in Connecticut, Sarah Lawrence College in Yonkers, New York, the Rose Museum in Waltham, Massachusetts, Mills College in Oakland, California, and the Minneapolis School of Art and Design. She is currently Associate Professor of painting at RISD. Awards and honors 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, California, and a Jerome Foundation Fellowship. She has an upcoming exhibition at Yossi Milo gallery in NYC and M and B gallery in LA
