Visual Art, Scholarly Retreat

During a scholarly retreat in the fall of 2018 Adam Crosson worked toward completing a video work.

Adam Crosson received his MFA in Sculpture + Extended Media from The University of Texas at Austin where he was a Jack G. Taylor and Virginia R. Allen Presidential Scholar and was also awarded the College of Fine Arts Fellowship and the Umlauf Prize. Before joining Tulane, he was a Fellow in The Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and also taught at the University of Houston. He has received additional fellowships to study at the Royal College of Art, London, and to attend the Vermont Studio Center. Adam’s interdisciplinary approach to making and teaching is informed by a background in architecture and looks to disassemble traditional boundaries of media as applied to sculpture, photography, and the moving image. His studio practice is concerned with factors that contribute to identities of place—particularly in the Southern United States—and his installations often explore relationships between object and image. Adam has been included in recent group exhibitions at Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand, Triumph, Chicago, IL, Lawndale Art Center, Houston, TX, and The Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO. He has held recent solo exhibitions at Co-Lab Projects in Austin, TX and the Contemporary Art Gallery at Southeastern Louisiana University, Hammond, LA. He has also organized and curated exhibitions in London, Texas, and Vermont and is co-founder of Pig & Pony Gallery.
