Grace Adam is an artist and educator, and a Pathway Leader on the Level Three, International Preparation for Design, Media and Screen course at London College of Communication.
Grace works across drawing, painting, sculpture and installation. She exhibits regularly, often creating temporary site-responsive installations in our shared public spaces.
Grace is particularly interested in our environments; how we build, negotiate and use them. Her work references town-planning, the objects we buy, the everyday and notions of what can be beautiful and where. She is interested in the fascination with and fetishisation of objects manifests itself in gallery, museum, religious and domestic contexts. How the selection and collection of objects and ephemera, form vast sprawling portraits of people's lives and preoccupations.
Grace is fascinated with the concept of objects as props; their purpose not only to facilitate our functioning well in our constructed spaces, but often to dress these spaces.
Having trained initially as a painter, she has an MA in Sculpture and Installation from Chelsea College of Arts and was a Fellow at the college for the following year. Grace also holds a PGCert and as well as her teaching at LCC and Chelsea College of Arts, she has worked with The Whitechapel Gallery, The Serpentine Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery, Frieze and Tate.
Alongside her practice and teaching, she hosts an online contemporary art review channel. Reviews include Marcel Duchamp at the RA, David Hockney at Tate, Grayson Perry at the Serpentine, Chris Ofili at The National Gallery, Louise Bourgeois and Yayoi Kusama at Sotheby’s S|2, and Richard Long at Houghton Hall, Norfolk.
