This exhibition is part of the Season 6 Curator–in–Residence Program curated by Michele Fiedler.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Adriana Minoliti creates pictorial work from a possible mix of geometry and Queer theory. In her body of work, geometry is the best tool to represent and imagine a trans-human utopia, within which gender theories can be applied to the pictorial language and find new ways of experiment in the visual world. Her exhibitions include Aichi Triennale 2016, Japan; Agustina Ferreyra Galería and Beta Local, Puerto Rico; Mercosul Biennial, Brasil; Brooklyn Museum; and residencies from Mexico, New York, London, and France. She was awarded the Acquisition Prize at the Arcos Dorados Latin American Competition, First Prize Biennial Bahia Blanca, and Acquisition Prize at the Central Bank of Argentina. She lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Bobbi Woods was born in St. Louis, Missouri. She earned a BFA and an MFA from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, in 2004 and 2008, and studied at Staedelschule, Frankfurt/Main, Germany. In 2015, Woods participated in The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project presented by LAND, Tucson, AZ; a two-person exhibition with Mark Verabioff at Ditch Projects, Eugene OR; as well as in a two-person exhibition with Brian Kennon at Fourteen30 Contemporary, Portland, OR. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently at Pepin Moore, Los Angeles; Loudhailer Gallery, Los Angeles; Night Gallery, Los Angeles; Infernoesque, Berlin; Derek Eller, New York; Nathalie Karg Gallery, New York; White Columns, New York; Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain, Nice, France. Bobbi Woods lives in Portland, OR and Los Angeles, CA.
ABOUT THE CURATOR
Michele Fiedler is a curator and writer based in Mexico City, where she is the Curator at Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros. Born in Puerto Rico, she received an MA in Curatorial Practice from California College of the Arts in 2011.

She collaborates with Kadist Art Foundation on a series of video interviews of Latin American artists and is contributing research of the 1990s art scene in Monterrey for the upcoming exhibition Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in Mexico in the 1990’s, curated by Irene Tsatsos for the Getty’s LA/LA initiative at The Armory Center in Pasadena, CA. She has curated shows at The Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, CA; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italy; Museo de Arte de Caguas, Puerto Rico; The Victoria Theater in San Francisco, CA; and at the Park of Arts Muzeon in Moscow, Russia, among others. Michele Fiedler is Disjecta’s sixth Curator-in-Residence.
ABOUT CURATOR-IN-RESIDENCE SEASON 6
“The 2016-2017 season will investigate the formats by which information is transmitted through popular culture, histories, ideas, tendencies and the types of performativities that accompany them. There is fiction and truth in the creation of these systems of communications, there is intent, there are interpretations that vary according to the context in which they are received, there are constructions that have been evidenced by time, reason and research, there are needs and neologisms that emerge with technologies and time, there are new forms of thinking that develop. Information is overwhelming and vast, the artists invited to participate may evidence the process behind creating information, deconstruct it, use it to their advantage, appropriate it, or perform it”. – Michele Fiedler
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Curator-in-Residence program provides an opportunity for emerging local and national curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their practice through a one-year residency. Curators engage with a broad range of artists to create a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,500-square-foot space. Past Curators-in-Residence include: Chiara Giovando (2015-16), Rachel Adams (2014-15), Summer Guthery (2013-14), Josephine Zarkovich (2012-13), and Jenene Nagy (2011-12).
