Title: Only Living Traditions Will Survive, 2009
Adam Rompel was born in Los Angeles and 'found' art on 24 September 1994, during the Bruce Nauman retrospective at MOCA. He went on to finish his studies at U.C. Berkeley, exhibit his content specific work in SF & LA, and open a project space called Lucky Tackle. Most recently, Adam completed his MA at Saint Martins and now spends his time immersing himself in English traditions through cultural references that were available to him in his youth. Although his work is based in a conceptual practice, his bio is plot driven, which is a prerequisite for being America.
