The Feminist School of Painting: Workshops and Collaborators

The 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 new murals of vibrant silhouettes of animals, landscapes and geometrical forms.

Reimagining the structure of an art school, Minoliti will collaborate with a group of Bay Area artists, scholars, writers, and teachers to lead weekly workshops open to intergenerational artists and non-artists alike. Each workshop is centered around a traditional painting genre—landscape, portraiture, still life—and will combine discussion and studio painting instruction to reimagine historical narratives related to that week’s subject. By incorporating her collaborators’ diverse backgrounds in biology, science fiction, gender studies, technology, and more, the free workshops aim to promote accessibility and curiosity over any art-specific expertise. Rooted in Minoliti’s practice, The School will employ feminist queer theory and experimentation as a foundation for learning and critical thought.
