The Feminist School of Painting: Geometry and Abstraction with Ad Minoliti
Geometry and Abstraction with Ad Minoliti
November 17, 1–3pm
Geometry and Abstraction replace figurative forms with bold colors and simple shapes—like triangles, circles, and trapezoids—to represent the realities of life. Despite their seeming simplicity, they often symbolize religious figures, musical compositions, science, and nature. Foregoing the male artists who typically dominate the history of geometry and abstraction, this workshop will focus primarily on works by female artists from Latin America including Lygia Clark, Ines Raiteri, Yente, Silvia Gurfein, Mira Schendel, Scafati, Carmen Herrera, and others. Minoliti will also incorporate ideas and techniques from her own practice to imagine more open interpretations of geometric abstraction.
Ad Minoliti is a painter who combines the pictorial language of geometric abstraction with the perspective of queer theory. Her different experimental installations encompass art history, architecture, queer feminism, interior design, animalism and speculative fiction.
Registration for the workshop is required.
