Adam John Manley: Artist Talk

INFO
Tuesday, July 29 2014

Join artist Adam John Manley as he talks about the work in his exhibition Staying Put, which is on view in our annex gallery through September 6.

Trained in Furniture making and construction techniques, Adam Manley creates a range of works, from large-scale sculptural objects and installations, to furniture and functional objects. Currently, his work addresses Landscape, environment, space and place through constructed forms that engage the viewer not only with the work itself, but also with the immediate surroundings. This work promotes an evaluation of the relationship to and engagement with place, while exploring the personal sense of place that we all harbor. Utilizing the language of familiar utilitarian objects, iconic architectural structures, and infrastructural systems, Adam investigates the personal relationship with the everyday spaces that we inhabit and re-imagines it by altering and transplanting familiar forms. His recent body of work explores landscape, place, and history through juxtaposition of elements into confounding narratives.

Adam Currently teaches at UMass Dartmouth’s Program in Artisanry and splits his time between New Bedford Massachusetts and Portland Maine.
