Tonight: Adam Chodzko

FREE. Booking Recommended.

Adam Chodzko (b.1965, London) is an artist whose multidisciplinary practice explores the interactions and possibilities of human behaviour in the gap between how we are and how we could be. Exhibiting work nationally and internationally since 1991, working across media, from video installation to subtle interventions, and with a practice that is partly sited within the gallery space and partly within the wider public realm, Chodzko’s work explores our collective imagination in order to speculate how, through the visual, we might best connect with others.

Since 1991, he has exhibited at numerous venues around the world including Tate Britain; Tate St Ives; Venice Biennale; Royal Academy, London; Deste Foundation, Athens; PS1, NY; Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; Kunstmuseum Luzern; Henry Moore Institute, Leeds; Yorkshire Sculpture Park; Athens Biennale; Istanbul Biennial; Benaki Museum, Athens; and Folkestone Triennial. Chodzko has previously received awards from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New York and an AHRC Creative Research Fellowship and was shortlisted for the 2015 Jarman Award. He lives and works in Whitstable, Kent and is currently Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Kent.
