Angela Hennessy

Artadia Awardee

Angela Hennessy’s materially diverse practice elegantly investigates subjects like mourning, ritual, and womanhood. By using hair as her primary material, Hennessy is able to explore its metaphorical and political relationship to blackness in compelling and original ways. Her sculptures are a powerful representation of an artist working at the intersection of total technical expertise and conceptual clarity.

Angela Hennessy is the recipient of the 2019 San Francisco Foundation Visual Arts Artadia Award.
