Angela Washko: Poking the Hive is an exhibition of the artist’s video works and video gaming interventions. Washko’s work attempts to disclose the cultural stereotypes of women embedded within video game narratives and characters, the ways in which anti-feminist attitudes manifest in the interactions of online gaming communities, and how a purposeful redirection of game play can often elucidate the cultural constructs that inform it.

The exhibition features videos from four major bodies of work by the artist including The Council on Gender Sensitivity and Behavioral Awareness in the World of Warcraft (founded 2012), The World of Warcraft Psychogeographical Association (founded 2012), Free Will Mode (2013-2017), and Heroines with Baggage (2011 -2014).

Fragile Strengths: Thoughts on Aging is a multimedia self-portrait that looks inward. In keeping with Feminist traditions, this visual autobiography invites dialogue to raise consciousness about issues confronting aging. It investigates aspects of a life of a single, mature woman who although powerful and confident, can feel disenfranchised, invisible or muffled, as she grows older.
