Plays and Penalties
Max Adrian is an artist with a diverse studio practice that involves sculpture, installation, and writing, among other disciplines. Greatly influenced by history and the art of storytelling, Adrian is concerned with ways in which humans engage with one another among such issues as social rights, sexuality, and cultural traditions. His work, oftentimes bordering a line between playful and sinister, tends to imply a state of activity while taking the guise of toys, tools, or relics of an unknown ritual. Questions arise as to how such objects have been or are supposed to be interacted with. Adrian was awarded a Windgate Fellowship, an apprenticeship with Redmoon Theater in Chicago, IL, he was a resident of the New York Studio Residency Program, and is a current resident of the 2015/2016 Charlotte Street Studio Residency.
Charlotte Street is an ArtsKC Catalyst Grant recipient.
