Adam Hurwitz is a visual artist who lives and works in New York City. Hurwitz makes looping, computer generated, non-narrative videos that attempt to convey the texture and melancholy of memory. The videos are informed by Hurwitz’s experience as a painter and exist somewhere between painting and film. They are part of an ongoing video installation project titled Reflective Nostalgia; this title comes from a term described in Svetlana Boym’s book The Future of Nostalgia.
He received his MFA in painting from Yale University and has exhibited in solo and group shows in Manhattan, Boston, San Diego, Maryland, and elsewhere. He has received grants from Joan Mitchell Foundation and New York Foundation for the Arts in Digital/Electronic Arts, among others. He was awarded MacDowell Colony Fellowships in 2015 and 2017, and a Yaddo residency in 2016. His work has been reviewed in The New Yorker and he was the featured artist in the Fall/Winter 2015 issue of the Tupelo Quarterly. He is participating in the the touring exhibition, Real-Fake in 2017 and 2018 and will present a solo show at Studio 10 Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, in early 2018.
