Adam Ledford, Don’t Worry About the Government
September 5 - December 3, 2017
Opening Reception October 6 from 5-9 pm during Art Loop
Through the medium of clay, Adam Ledford investigates the ideologies of mid-century modernism by leading the viewer through three-dimensional space. Objects placed in situ infer women’s roles, the workforce, mass marketing, modern conveniences, and the restructuring of society in a wholly recreated domestic space. The key to his praxis finds root in anthropological research, forming the conduit to narratives about cultural and personal identity.
Ledford graduated from Tyler School of Art in 2011 and was awarded a Windgate Fellowship allowing him to pursue a course of research in historical art collections along the Eastern Seaboard, Pacific Northwest, England and United Arab Emirates.
