Pasha Radetzki is a visual artist working primarily in sculpture and performance with live sound at the intersection of environmental and social justice.
He creates eco-conscious landscape sculptures and conceives participatory art initiatives which present a unifying, equitable and sustainable worldview for our common future.

After growing up in the Belarus-Ukrainian border region and a mandatory Soviet Navy service, Radetzki arrived in New York as a first-generation American in 1997. He started making art while working alongside prominent art critics at The Village Voice, to which he contributed critical writing on visual and performance art.

Radetzki’s first solo exhibition was held at Jennifer Baahng Gallery in Manhattan followed by the most comprehensive overview of his early works at Amelie A. Wallace Gallery at State University of New York, both in 2009. Consequently, the artist presented solo exhibitions in Mexico, Brazil, China and the U.S.

His works were also featured at international Manifesta 11 (Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich, Switzerland), dOCUMENTA 13 (Hauptbahnhof, Kassel, Germany), 4th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, 4th Moscow Photo Biennial (Manezh); Manifesta 4 (Frankfurt, Germany) and 8th Cordoba Photo Biennial (Spain).
