Ad Minoliti (b. 1980, Buenos Aires) lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Minoliti received her BFA in 2003 from National Academy of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredon, Argentina. She was part of Diana Aisenberg “art clinic” and workshop from 2003 to 2006, and was in the research program of the Artistic Research Center of Buenos Aires from 2009 to 2011.
Ad Minoliti is a painter who combines the pictorial language of geometric abstraction with the perspective of queer theory. Engaging in a diversity of formats and media from easel painting to installation, Minoliti assumes painting not as a mere material practice, but rather as a visual set of ideas to approach normative categories of sexuality and biology. Throughout Minoliti’s work, geometrical forms and surreal landscapes serve to imagine a post-humanist setting in which feminist and gender theories can be applied to an open interpretation of painting, design, and art history.
