The work of Ad Minoliti is concerned with the relation between eroticism, queer theory, history and geometry—as well as the anthropological importance and social implications of design. For the artist, geometry is the best tool to represent and imagine a trans-human utopia in which gender theories can be applied to the pictorial language, giving way to new possibilities in which we can experiment the visual world. Through a wide variety of mediums and expressions, such as painting, installation, sculpture, video and fashion, Minoliti aims to debunk fixed ideas about gender through aesthetic confrontation, while commenting on gender conditions, roles and relations.
Minoliti’s recent exhibitions include Aichi, Japan, Galería Agustina Ferreyra and Beta Local, San Juan, Puerto Rico, among others. She has received grants from the Ministry of Culture of Argentina, the Metropolitan Fund for the Arts of Buenos Aires and Mexico’s FONCA Conaculta, as well a several awards including the 2015 National Painting Award from the Central Bank of the Republic of Argentina, the 2004 CV0 Award from Ruth Benzacar Gallery, and 2013 Acquisition Prize at the Arcos Dorados Latin American Competition.
