Adrienne Doyle

Development Associate and Teaching Artist
Juxtaposition Arts
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Adrienne Doyle is a multimedia artist whose practice develops DIY tools and models that center the collective, connective, and vulnerable aspects of identity. Her work challenges widely-held narratives and invites her community to speak their truths. Writing and zine-making are at the crux of this work.

Adrienne is the founder of Burn Something Zine, a submission-based, queer- and trans-inclusive zine for women of color. She has collaborated with Red76 to publish the “Dreamy Communal Black Artist House Manifesto,” a proposal for a black artist-led communal household that also functions as public space for study, creation, and cultivation. Her most recent project, titled Returning, is a zine series examining the transformative qualities of grief and the miraculous stabilizing of self.

Adrienne’s work also includes her position at Juxtaposition Arts. Since 2015, she has led the planning and implementation of the organization's Black August programming, using art, design, and community building activities to bring youth through an investigation of movement and abolition work around the US prison system. Currently, she is the staff facilitator for the organization’s current Youth Participatory Action Research project on the accessibility of housing and eviction resources in  Minneapolis, MN.
