About Adam Helms

Adam Helms, a self-described ethnographer, explores the psychology and iconography of radical politics and subcultures. Using a variety of media−−ranging from photography, drawing, sculpture, and found images−−the Brooklyn, New York based artist engages the viewer with his clever and grotesque depiction of violence and anonymity. His previous awards and residencies include the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant NY, NY (2010), the Chinati Foundation Marfa, TX (2007), the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Visual Art Grant Award NY, NY (2006), the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award NY, NY (2005), and the Robert Schoelkopf Travelling Fellowship New Haven, CT (2003).
