Art advisor and curator Adam Shopkorn began his career in art while attending NYU’s Stern School of Business, putting together contemporary art collections for private clients. He continues to consult for a number of clients in New York, London, Hong Kong, Beirut and Dubai.

In fall of 2011, Shopkorn became Cultural Ambassador for Morgans Hotel Group. In his time as Cultural Ambassador, he has collaborated with many notable artists to enhance the creative ethos of Morgans Hotel Group. For the design of Mondrian SoHo, he worked with the estate of Sol LeWitt, to display the late artist’s photographic series "On The Walls of the Lower East Side" on the exterior façade, and with Marilyn Minter, who created a customized wallpaper for the lobby.

He is currently at work on his next project for Morgans Hotel Group, titled PLANE TEXT, which will take place at Art Basel Miami in Decemeber 2012, and involves a number of contemporary artists including Richard Prince, John Baldessari, Lawrence Weiner, and Ed Ruscha among many others.

In addition to his work in the art world, Shopkorn is also involved in film. Prior to attending NYU, he assisted Edward Pressman, producer of films such as Wall StreetCity Hall, Hoffa and American Psycho. After leaving Pressman Films, he began work on a documentary about the life of ex-basketball player Lenny Cooke. The film will be completed by winter 2012.

Shopkorn has an English and Art History Degree from Tufts University and an MBA from NYU's Stern School of Business.
