Canadian artist Kim Adams is known for his assemblage type sculptures that incorporate the readymade and prefabricated to explore social structures, the implications of technology and mobility, and the divide between life and art. Adams has exhibited extensively in Canada and internationally, and his works have been shown both in sanctioned gallery spaces, as well as out amongst the public. His challenging aesthetic and sense of humor emerge throughout his diverse practice.
