"Workers in Progress" explores the relationship between labor and value through painting, sculpture and installation.

“Workers in Progress” is a collection of thoughts and moments generated at the intersection of blue-collar construction and contemporary art. Viewers will encounter job-site inspired trompe l’oeil paintings, sculptures, and installations which function as a conceptual bridge that explores the relationship between labor and value.

Adcock's work has been published in New American Paintings, Newcity Art, the Examiner, and other publications. His artwork has been collected by 21c Museum, the Roy Liechtenstein family, and many other private collectors, nationally and internationally.  Anthony’s work has been exhibited throughout the country in various galleries and venues including Volta/Armory Show, Art Miami, the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, Logan Center Gallery,  and many others. He has contributed in performances for artist William Pope.L at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and at the Whitney Biennial.  Anthony works out of his studio in his hometown of Chicago.
