Erica H. Adams
An interdisciplinary visual artist, Erica H. Adams’ watercolors, photography and digital media have been exhibited in museums and galleries across the U.S. and Canada. Adams was awarded a Mass Cultural Council grant (2023).
Curator of Above Us Only Sky (2022) and its (2023) iteration, Adams co-curated Respeto/Respect (2013) a Chiapas Photography Project traveling exhibition that opened at Yale University's Institute of Sacred Music (2013) and was reviewed (2019) by The Arts Fuse.
Recent solo exhibition of watercolors (2020-22) Spirit in the Dark was reviewed by ArtScope (2023): Adams used the language of abstraction in response to the pandemic, quarantine and social upheaval. A postmodern artist invested in narratives, Adams revisited the Modernist language of abstraction, a private world and a visual music open to multiple interpretations.
Abstract panel paintings first exhibited at Cape Cod Museum of Art (2015) in Formal Aspects, use common materials in combinations intended to provoke chemical reactions akin to geology and climate change.
Photographs by Adams are in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Polaroid International Collection, Germany, have been exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Everson Museum (NY), Art Gallery of Ontario (Canada) and Acceptable Entertainment a traveling exhibition about television’s impact on culture, circulated by Independent Curator’s International (NY).
