Adam Waldron-Blain graduated from the University of Alberta’s fine art program in 2007. Since then he has been based in Edmonton and Glasgow. In 2011 he was artist-in-residence in the back lanes and derelict spaces of the Woodlands community in Glasgow, ran games for the IgFest Interesting Games festival in Bristol, and participated in a residency program at the Banff Centre with Icelandic artists Ragnar Kjartansson, Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir and Davíð Þór Jónsson. He performed in the dusty parking lots and wide streets of downtown Edmonton in Dirt City:Dream City, a transitory public art project involving fifteen Edmonton artists curated by Kendal Henry, in July and August of 2012, and spent the winter in residence on Toronto Island and at the Banff Centre.
