Ad Minoliti, Feminist School of Painting
Feminist School of Painting is a solo exhibition by Ad Minoliti. Culminating her residency at KADIST, the exhibition will transform the galleries into an active classroom with newly commissioned murals and paintings.
Over the course of the exhibition, Minoliti will collaborate with a group of Bay Area artists, scholars, writers, and teachers to lead free weekly workshops open to intergenerational artists and non-artists alike. Rooted in Minoliti’s practice, the school will employ feminist queer theory and experimentation as a foundation for learning. By incorporating her collaborators’ diverse backgrounds in biology, science-fiction, gender studies, technology, and more, the school aims to foster the creative possibilities inherent to interdisciplinary exchange. Each session will use a traditional painting genre—portraiture, still life, or landscape, for example—as provocation for reimagining historical narratives. The exhibition will also include a fanzine library, coloring station, and related video materials.
