Adam Cruces is an artist who was born in 1985 in Houston, Texas and currently lives and works Zürich, CH.

He received his BFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Kansas City Art Institute in 2008, and his MFA in Art and Media from Zürcher Hochschule der Künste in 2013. Cruces’ work is interested in human interaction with the landscape, while incorporating a wide variety of material approaches – painting, sculpture, and video. These elements often culminate in installations that collapse notions of obligation and leisure, nature and domestication, the familiar and the foreign. 

His work has been exhibited at Kunsthaus Baselland, Basel, CH; Swiss Institute, Milan, IT; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Kunsthaus Langenthal, Langenthal, CH; kim? Contemporary Art Centre, Riga, LV; Kunsthal Aarhus, Aarhus, DK; and Museo della Frutta, Turin, IT. He has held residencies at Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, FR; Rupert, Vilnius, LT; Aldea, Bergen, NO; and Cripta747, Turin, IT, and Nave, Guayllabamba, EC.
