Adams Anne

Adams Anne was born in 1993 in Nigeria and is a contemporary ceramic artist currently working and living in Lagos.

Anne Adams (b. 1993) in Nigeria and is a contemporary ceramic artist currently studying for her MFA at Tyler School Art and Architecture. Anne focuses on using her medium and style to change the narrative surrounding the quality and potential of ceramic as an art form in Nigeria. Working primarily with clay, she uses the coil technique in her works as a harmonious display of interactions with balance and indigenous design. Her works are intimate, familiar, and a representation of abundance and harmony.

Anne has uncompromisingly maintained that Africans need to own and accept our own. The representation of Nigerian pottery should not only be seen in Museums as stolen artifacts but be represented today in galleries and individual spaces, as a primal element of our existence as human beings.

Anne has participated in group exhibitions and fairs such as ArtxLagos, Nigeria 2022, Salon Revelations Biennale, Le grand palais, Paris, France, 2022, A Vernacular homage to Architecture and Design, Affinity Art Gallery, Lagos, 2021, Yemisi Shyllon Musuem, The Invicible hands, Lagos, 2021.
