Picture Scores | Adam Michael Terry

3 December 2021 - 31 January 2022 Upstairs @ Modern West

Modern West is pleased to introduce Adam Terry as our next artist in residence from October 1 through  December 23, 2021. An opening to celebrate the body of works created during the residency will be held December 3rd, 2021 from 6-8pm. All are invited to attend. 


During his residency, Adam Terry plans to create 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, Adam 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.
