Kim Adams wins the 2012 Gershon Iskowitz Prize
And along with it, $50,000 and a solo show at his hometown institution, the Art Gallery of Ontario, which administers the prize. Let me say: Yay. I've long been a fan, and it's been way too long since a substantial show of Adams' work showed up in these parts (though no complaints about last year's Diaz show, which I loved.)
The show is slated for December of this year. Given the scale at which Adams most often operates (As he once told me: "Big!") he's better get cracking.
