Dennis Adams (b. 1948) is an American conceptual artist whose work includes photography, text, and installation. Adams is best known for his projects involving structures placed in urban bus shelters, uncompromisingly inserted into the public sphere. These politically charged photographs and their accompanying texts are not used to make overtly ideological statements, but are open-ended in ways that challenge viewers to test their own convictions.

"I've very interested in making something tied to the street, tied to the body, a very human interaction," Adams notes in this interview with Kate Horsfield.

A historical interview originally recorded in 1989.
