Artist Statement

Understanding there are many worlds within this world and they each have an end, familiar creatures appropriated from government seals and crests convoke to imagine indigenous futures within the post-apocalyptic present.

Adam Khalil is a participant in Art on the Grid, a citywide, open-air exhibition presented by Public Art Fund. Conceived in the spring of 2020, the exhibition features 50 artists’ reflections on the converging crises of the coronavirus pandemic and systemic racism in our country.
