Adelita Husni-Bey

Milan, 1985. Lives in New York

Husni-Bey’s art analyzes forms of representation of political and economic models imposed as mass ideologies in neoliberal societies. Characterized by an open process intended to encourage critical responses from different social groups, the artist’s works identify their decisive element in the dialectical dimension of confrontation. Many of her pieces, such as Agency (2010), 2265 and After the Finish Line (2015), began life as workshops, often carried out with young people and teenagers, and designed to generate comparison and socialization, exploring the potential of alternative and radical educational models. Husni-Bey’s work is centered around belief in the word as a demiurgic act, which creates and develops ideas and relationships, leading to the generation of authentic platforms for social change, as in the case of White Paper: The Law (2015). She has taken part in various exhibitions, including the 5th Thessaloniki Biennale (2015), Really Useful Knowledge, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid (2014), and the 5th Moscow Biennale (2013).
