Cey Adams, "Pop Revolution"
April 14th – June 8th, 2018
Cey Adams, celebrated fine artist and legendary art director of Def Jam Records, will bring his evocative and political collage works to the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) in a solo exhibition, “Pop Revolution.” By shaping contemporary images within known brand logos, Adams layers meanings onto his work, inviting the viewer to examine their own relationship to the iconic brands that have shaped our culture.
“I’ve always had a fascination with Pop Art and brand identity. My recent paintings invite the viewer to re-examine familiar symbols of traditional american values, hopefully sparking dialogue that leads to communication and a better understanding of who we are.” – Cey Adams
