Visiting Artist Talk – Kate Adams

The School of Music and Fine Art are delighted to welcome Kate Adams in the next of our  Visiting Artists series.

Thursday 21st November, 6-8pm
BridgeWardens College- Lecture Theatre,
Open to Students and Staff

Kate Adams is a visual artist; her practice encompasses video, installation, construction and drawing. Much of her work addresses the phenomenology of built space, nonverbal communication and perceptual impairment. Kate co-founded Project Art Works, an artist-ledorganization that conducts collaborations with galleries, care agencies and people who have complex needs.

Her politically engaged advocacy as an artist informs the cultural and social connectedness of Project Art Works and its actions. This aspect of her practice requires sensitivity to the ethical issues arising from what she describes as nonconsensual involvement in art. Kate will discuss the potential of art to shift responsibility for change from the amorphous realms of ‘society’ and ‘culture’ to the individual.

Recent exhibitions include: States and Spaces, MK Gallery (2011/12); Who’s There? One Year Later, Jerwood Gallery, Hastings 2013; The Room and Everything in it, Dilston Grove, London (current).
