MASSACHUSETTS – ARGENTINE ARTIST AD MINOLITI EXHIBITS AT THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART

Currently on view, Fantasías Modulares presents a wide range of elements. Grinning triangles, lounging cows, and winking circles populate the vibrant, queer landscapes of Ad Minoliti’s imagined worlds. Trained as a painter, Minoliti draws on the rich legacy of geometric abstraction in her native country, Argentina, where geometry was used as a tool for picturing utopian alternatives. By combining abstraction with playful figuration, Minoliti upends familiar fairy tales, turning them on their head. She is particularly interested in disrupting pictorial cultural norms that uphold traditional views of sexuality and gender.
