Adam Liam Rose (b. 1990) is an interdisciplinary artist working across sculpture, drawing, video and installation.  Born in Jerusalem and raised mostly in the United States, his works investigate the aesthetic systems of power embedded within architecture.  Rose draws inspiration from political realities in Israel/Palestine and the United States, often looking to structures of separation and control whose intentions either manifest outright, or slither beneath the surface.  His works navigate ideas around artifact, “history,” and collective memory, uncovering how these distinct categories coalesce into feelings of place or “placeness.”  Utilizing and subverting utilitarian materials including paper, textiles, and plywood, he creates a space for dialogue between the permanent and the ephemeral, the physical body, and the history embedded in objects. 
Rose was a fellow at the Bronx Museum of the Arts' AIM Program, the Art & Law Program in New York, and is a recipient of an Artis Contemporary Residency Grant. He was awarded artist residencies at Triangle Arts Association (Brooklyn, NY), Bemis Center for Contemporary Art (Omaha, NE), Ox-Bow School of Art (Saugatuck, MI), A-Z West: Institute of Investigative Living (Joshua Tree, CA), the Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT) and the Chicago Artists Coalition's HATCH Residency (Chicago, IL).  Rose's publication 'Between the Bars' (Genderfail Press, 2021) is in the artists' book collection of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, PRATT Institute and The Frick Fine Arts Library in Pittsburgh. He received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago ('12) and an MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts (‘17). Rose joined as co-director at artist run gallery Ortega y Gasset Projects in 2019:
