Adrian Paci is an artist from Albania who is currently based in Milan, Italy. Originally a painter, with a classic education from the Art Academy in Tirana, today he works in many techniques, including painting, photography and video. Paci’s work reveals a great passion for social issues where justice and dedication for human beings are prominent. His childhood and adolescence in Albania, as subsequent emigration to Italy are experiences that often recur in his art. His exhibitions include: Looking Awry curated by the Croatia-based collective WHW at apexart (2003); In the Gorges of the Balkans curated by René Block at the Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel, Germany (2003); New Video, New Europe curated by Hamza Walker at the Tate Modern, London; and the Biennial of Sevilla, Spain, curated by Harald Szeemann (October 2004). In 2005 solo exhibitions of his work will be presented at Moderna Museet, Stockholm and the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
Adrian Paci’s film work Per Speculum is now receiving its Swedish premiere at Bonniers Konsthall.
