Angela Dufresne

Imitation of Life, or why Queen Jane Should be Approximately

Wednesday, February 25, 2009
7:30 pm
Danforth Lecture Hall

In her paintings, New York-based Angela Dufresne irreverently concocts imaginary communities that satisfy her vision for the world.  She describes her paintings, which bring together disparate sources from film, music, architecture, and the history of painting, as "mashups"--hybrids.  Dufresne has also had recent solo exhibitions at Monya Rowe Gallery, New York, and at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.  

Angela Dufresne's lecture is presented in conjunction with Painting the Glass House, currently on view at the Mills College Art Museum through March 22, 2009.

A Message to Keith Boadwee...

Dearest Keith, the graduates at Mills feel the same way.   What a fantastic day it was, indeed.  We clink our beer and wine glasses with your gimlet glass .  "CLINK"

The Mills College MFA students in Studio Art have invited California artist Keith Boadwee to lecture in Danforth Hall, Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 7:30pm.

Keith Boadwee studies at UCLA in the 80s where he worked with Paul McCarthy and Chris Burden.  Boadwee's work achieved notoriety in the 90s when grouped with other artists in the arena of identity politics.  His works have been exhibited at venues such as the Venice Biennale, MOCA Los Angeles and P.S. 1.

This lecture is made possible by the Herringer Family Foundation.
