Adam Basanta is an artist, composer, and performer of experimental music. Using a variety of media, he explores the performative dimension inherent in technological practices. From this perspective, he sees artistic creation as a form of ongoing research and discovery, a way of being involved and being part of the world. This guiding principle – constant change, risk-taking, and the acquiring of new skills – underpins the resulting variety of processes, methodologies and media formats.


His work has been shown internationally, including at Arsenal Contemporary Art (Montreal), Fotomuseum Winterthur, National Art Centre Tokyo, 5th Moscow Biennale for Young Art, Carroll/Fletcher Gallery (London), American Medium Gallery (New York), Serralves Museum (Porto), Edith-Russ-Haus für Mediakunst (Oldenburg), and The Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe. His work is part of public and private collections. Basanta has received numerous awards in Canada and abroad, including the Prix Pierre-Ayot 2018. He holds a bachelor’s degree in music composing from Simon Fraser University (Vancouver) and an interdisciplinary master’s degree in fine arts research-creation from Concordia University (Montreal). Born in Tel Aviv and raised in Vancouver, he has been living and working in Montreal since 2010. He is represented by ELLEPHANT (Montreal).
