Solo shows:
• Adam McEwen, Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, Colorado/US (13.01-28.05)

Born in London in 1965, Adam McEwen lives and works in New York City. He studied English Literature at Christ Church, Oxford before attending the California Institute of the Arts, Valencia, graduating in 1992. His work moves freely between the disciplines of painting, sculpture and installation. After writing obituaries for the Daily Telegraph in London, Adam McEwen turned the genre into artworks with a series of obituaries of still living figures, including Kate Moss, Bill Clinton and Jeff Koons. He is well known for his life-sized graphite sculptures of such familiar consumer objects as an ATM, a water fountain or a credit card, his Bomber Harris series – monochromatic paintings covered with chewed gums – and his prints on sponges.

McEwen’s numerous recent solo exhibitions include: Non-Alignment Pact, Art : Concept, Paris (2014), Factory Tint, Capitain Petzel, Berlin (2014), Swaney Bean, The Modern Institute, Glasgow (2013), Rehabilitating the Steinway Tube Ducts, Rodolphe Janssen Gallery, Brussels (2013) and The House of Marlon Brando, Art : Concept (2011). He took part in major group shows such as Love Story, Sammlung Anne und Wolfgang Titze, 21er Haus, Belvedere, Vienna (2014), Wanted, Selected Works from the Mugrabi Collection, Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2013), Haunted, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2010), the Whitney Biennial (2006) and Into Me/Out of Me, PS1 / MOMA, New York (2006). As curator, he has conceived various projects including Fresh Hell – Carte blanche à Adam McEwen at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2010).
