BALTIC presents Ad Minoliti’s ongoing project The Feminist School of Painting, as part of their solo show Biosfera Peluche / Biosphere Plush.
The gallery space will be transformed for art workshops open to participants of all ages and experience levels.
The Feminist School of Painting seeks to critically reimagine the structure of the ‘art school’, exploring the potential functions of painting beyond the professional status. The school will reconsider traditional painting genres as a starting point to develop a feminist, intersectional, intergenerational and queer approach to the practice and histories of Art, inclusive of trans-feminism and all those who identify as women.
At BALTIC, the school will specifically explore the genre of landscape painting, approached in an expanded sense – beyond the white male hetero-normative gaze – from urban design to outer space landscapes, digital landscapes or as the construction of a human paradigm.
The classes will be run in partnership with a multidisciplinary group of artists, academics, writers, and activists. By incorporating collaborators from diverse backgrounds, the classes playfully promote accessibility, creativity and curiosity over any art-specific expertise.
All sessions will take place in the alcove space of our Level 4 Gallery and live streamed online via Zoom. Tickets are free and all art materials will be provided if attending in person. Booking is essential to reserve your space.
