Meet Carris Adams

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carris Adams. Thanks for sharing your story with us Carris. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there. I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. I came to Chicago in 2013 to earn my MFA from The University of Chicago.

Watch Carris Adams perform for the Chicago Poetry Center as a member of Patricia Rose:

Poetry Reading: Maria Barnas and Danielle Rosen

The poets will be reading in response to the current exhibition on view, Viviane Sassen: UMBRA. Maria Barnas is a Dutch writer, poet and artist whose work centers on the myriad ways description can shape reality. Barnas wrote a series of poems to accompany UMBRA, which she will recite during this event.

Carris Adams is a visual artist whose practice visually investigates markers of domesticated space. The conceptually multi-layered works seek to inform and position viewers to recognize their assumptions, recall an experience and perhaps note how societal markers materialize in the landscape. Adams received her BFA from the University  of Texas at Austin (2013) and her MFA from the University of Chicago (2015).
