Born in 1971, the Winnipeg-based artist KC Adams (Métis) earned a bachelor of fine arts from Concordia University in Montréal and has focused her work on the investigation of the relationship between nature (the living) and technology (progress). In addition to receiving several grants and awards from the Winnipeg Arts Council, Manitoba Arts Council, and Canada Council for the Arts, twenty pieces from Adams’ Cyborg Hybrid series are in the permanent collection of the National Art Gallery in Ottawa. Adams was the director of the Urban Shaman Gallery in Winnipeg from 2008–09. She currently lives and works in Winnipeg.
