Adam Liam Rose (b. 1990) is an artist exploring the visual language and architecture of “safety.” Born in Jerusalem and raised mostly in the United States, his multi-disciplinary practice investigates the slippage between theater and life; where aesthetics and cheap tricks are used to numb, sooth or distract populations from a real or perceived disaster.
Rose was a fellow at the Bronx Museum of the Arts' AIM Program, The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program, and the Art & Law Program. He was awarded artist residencies at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (Brooklyn, NY), Fire Island Artist Residency (Fire Island, NY), 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 artist's book collection of MoMa Library, 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.
He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY
