Interview with Alice Adams
By Jonathan D. Lippincott
Alice Adams is an American artist known for her sculpture and site-specific land art of the 1960s and 1970s, and, since the mid-1980s, her public art projects in cities across the United States. I first encountered Adams’ work when I was curating one of the 80th anniversary exhibitions for the American Abstract Artists, in 2016. I was intrigued by her sculpture and installation work, and the great range of projects she had undertaken in her career. We spoke via FaceTime earlier this spring.
