Professor Washko’s Solo Exhibition “Poking the Hive” Now On View at George Mason University

Poking the Hive Angela Washko

“Angela Washko: Poking the Hive,” on view at George Mason University through October 5, is an exhibition of Professor Washko‘s video works and video gaming interventions. Her 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).
