Dr Oriana Fox

Dr Oriana Fox is a video and performance artist and an art historian, and teaches art histories across several of our courses including Fine Art and Foundation. She holds a PhD in Visual Cultures and an MA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, University of London; as well as a BFA in Painting from Washington University in St. Louis.

Her written and practical work explore the connections between self-disclosure, non-conformity, belonging and mental health. More specifically, Oriana’s doctoral thesis investigates risky truth-telling within feminist and queer performance art from the 1970s to today, weighing up its therapeutic and political outcomes. In her videos, she combines sincerity and humour, taking on many roles from housewives and exercise goddesses to Viennese Actionists, in order to infuse the fantasies of those great myth-makers, TV and Hollywood, with feminist criticality.


Her most recent project is a talk show The O Show (2010 to present) on which she interviews artists, psychologists and other experts around a range of themes including shyness, gender identity and success. She has shown her work in renowned art venues such as the ICA, Tate Modern and Britain, Orchard Gallery in New York and Kunsthalle Wein, Vienna.
