Adele 이슬 Kenworthy

Adele Yiseol Kenworthy is an artist organizer and her vulnerability is her superpower.

She explores how flowers have dyed, draped, and nourished social movements; what it means for socially engaged art to exist as an embodied practice of care; and tends the spaces of cultural memory and art as reimagined heritage work.

Adele was in the inaugural cohort of the M.F.A. in Social Practice Art at the Corcoran School of Art and Design. In 2022, she was invited to the Washington Project for the Arts Artist Organizer Spring Residency and Transformer’s Exercises for Emerging Artists Program. They’ve exhibited at Transformer Gallery, DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Brentwood Arts Exchange, The Fearless Artist Pop up Gallery at Art Basel Miami, Gallery 102 at George Washington University and NEXT (2022) Festival at the Corcoran School of Art and Design. Their work has been featured in The Washington Post, District Fray, Washingtonian, Hyperallergic, and NBCWashington.

Her art practice and community is located on the traditional lands of the Piscataway and Nacotchtank (Anacostan) people,  in the Washington, D.C metro area.
