Adam Moore

Adam Moore is a transdisciplinary artist from east London of Caribbean and European heritage. Using choreographic, embodied, transdisciplinary processes in post-studio and socially engaged contexts he examines the intersectional discourses, technologies, and embodiments of sustainability.

Working with dance Adam speaks in a range of artistic languages and strategies moving freely across architecture, ceramics, design, painting, sculpture, sound, video, and text peaking at multimedia performance installation. Sprawling beyond institutional walls his social work with diverse groups across human rights, arts and culture non-profit and government welfare informs his approach to art making, collaboration, and sustainability. Working at various scales with different groups of people he finds alternative ways of thinking, doing, and being that soften hardened institutions stewarding life to thrive.

A Trinity Laban Leverhulme Performing Arts Scholar with an MFA in Dance Creative Practice, he is associate Lecturer for Contemporary Performance Practice: Experimental Arts and Performance at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. His work has been commissioned, exhibited and produced with support from House of Annetta, Queer Art Projects, Arts Council England, g39, Cardiff, Jerwood Arts, a-n The Artists Information Company, Hypha Studios (London Borough of Waltham Forest & REGENT STREET), Theatrum-Mundi, Jupiter Artland, Performance @ Kings (Kings College London), Camden Art Centre, Kunstraum, London, Ingestre Orangery, Newham London, UP Projects & Flat Time House, Guest Projects, The Yard, Hackney Wick, Haarlem Artspace, RAW Lab (Bow Arts) among others.

Adam has previously been awarded a Jerwood Bursary, and in 2023 was selected for Jerwood New Work Fund.

The Jerwood New Work Fund will support the development of a new collaborative performance installation with new works in print, ceramics, and live sound.

When asked what he is looking forward to in his Jerwood New Work Fund project, Adam said,

Collaborative professional development opportunities will build on my skills making performance installations and develop new areas of creative practice. I’m excited to learn from artists whose practices inspire me working internationally with ceramics, print, sound, and curation. I’m excited to work with new partners on public presentations, broaden my networks of peer and institutional support, and reach more people with my art.
