Adam Benmakhlouf

Adam Benmakhlouf works as an artist, educator, writer and programmer. Committedly manifold, Adam’s practice includes experimental sound production, installation, painting, community organising and critical writing. Their work sensitively counters the underrepresentation and undervaluing of queer and anti-colonial lifestyles, labour, communities and knowledges.

Their work was acquired in 2018 by the Glasgow Museum collections and in 2019 they were commissioned to create a major new work for the Edinburgh Art Festival. Their writing has been included in Art Monthly, Frieze and The Skinny – where Benmakhlouf has served as the Art Editor for five years. In 2021, they will present a new solo exhibition in Glasgow’s CCA Intermedia Gallery.
