Modern West is pleased to introduce Adam Michael Terry as our next artist in residence from October 1 through December 3, 2021. An opening to celebrate the body of works created during the residency will be held December 3, 2021 from 6-8pm. All are invited to attend.


During his residency, Adam Michael Terry is creating multimedia artwork he refers to as ‘picture scores’ by combining elements of darkroom photography processes, music composition, field recording, collage, and painting. The resulting visual art will be paired with a one-of-a-kind musical composition created on-the-spot in Southwestern landscapes and produced as a vinyl record. In addition, Terry will develop an immersive experience Upstairs @ Modern West. Using visual projection and surround sound, he will create a physical version of his ‘picture scores’ where gallery-goers can physically walk into the artwork and be plunged into his world.
