ADN Galeria was established in 2003 with the aim of creating a hybrid platform, for both commercial mediation and cultural contribution, with the objective of promoting current artistic trends.
The programme focuses on productions that prioritise content, positioning itself as a semantic reflection on the contextual dynamics in which they are generated. Aside from acting as commercial mediators, ADN Galeria is committed to generating, with the artists, networks of international appreciation that foment the debate surrounding the force lines of contemporary creation, and enable solid foundations to be established for their career development, through an active policy of media diffusion, online communication and participation in art fairs.
The gallery has established a policy of working collaboratively with intellectuals and professionals in the sector to enrich the programme and promote the dynamism of the most current visual arts. It also supports emerging collectors, with continuous and personalised advice.
From Thu. 17th to Sat. 19th Sept. / 10 am - 8 pm

This exhibition establishes a dialogue among a selection of works by Margaret Harrisson, María María Acha-Kutscher and Núria Güell, three artists from different nationalities and generations, with remarkable and distinctive artistic practices that share similar approaches and interests. Starting from their clear feminist positions, their work attacks the hegemonic narratives of power, denouncing the violence exerted against women and other subordinate groups. Some of their works also show an interest in analyzing and critically evaluating visual stereotypes, the device and conventions of the gaze and the representation of some subjects in art history. With an independent and confrontational attitude, these three artists share the willingness to influence social reality and transform it. They understand art as a possible tool for activism.
Pioneer of British and European feminist art, Margaret Harrison (Wakefield, England, 1940) questions notions of gender, identity, politics, social class, domestic violence and exploitation of women’s labor and sexuality.
Based in Madrid, María María Acha-Kutscher (Lima-Perú, 1968) is an international visual artist and co-director of the experimental art project Antimuseo. Her work centers on the woman, her story, the struggles for emancipation and equality, and the cultural construction of femininity.
Núria Güell (Girona, Spain 1981) reveals the perverse underlying strategies hidden in actions, languages and concepts. Her practice analyzes the flaws within these strategies applied by institutions such as banks, legislative and judicial authorities for domination purposes. Her methodology consists in subverting the law, disarticulating its unidirectional mechanisms and revealing the unethical procedures of hegemonic power.
