Angela Dufresne

Imitation of Life, or why Queen Jane Should be Approximately

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.
