Dennis Adams
From February 17th 1990 to March 18th 1990
Preferred Properties

Appropriating photographs and combining architecture and sculpture, Dennis Adams has created different types of public constructions. He is best known for his bus shelters (in New-York, Munster, Toronto...). "Adams takes the conventions of ambiguity and intervention in advertizing and postulates a new role for the viewer through the use of historial and political images."
- Patricia C. Phillips
"My work is about the fragility of history and memory in a fast-paced consumer society. I want to make visible the instant of loss, savor it if you will, as a kind of poetics of desperation."
