Adam Simon, Four Walls
The other co-conspirator and founder of the legendary Four Walls, painter Adam Simon, comes to the Clocktower to talk about the non-Williamsburg origins of the Williamsburg scene (the other is Matthew Sharpe). Four
Walls opened in Hoboken, New Jersey, in 1984, with a one-night exhibition and artist talk that was a double-bill of Joyce Pensado and Christopher Wool. The rest is history. Since then Adam has shown his work widely and also founded the Fine Art Adoption Network, an organization that pairs up enthusiastic collectors with artwork that is hard to sell (the vast majority).
