Angela Washko is an artist, writer and facilitator devoted to creating new forums for discussions of feminism in spaces frequently hostile toward it. Since 2012, Washko has operated The Council on Gender Sensitivity and Behavioral Awareness in World of Warcraft, an ongoing intervention inside the most popular online role-playing game of all time. Her most recent project, The Game: The Game is a video game presenting the practices of several prominent seduction coaches (aka pick-up artists) through the format of a dating simulator. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University. Washko has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including but not limited to Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, Shenzhen Independent Animation Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, The Andy Warhol Museum, and the Rotterdam International Film Festival.
