Derrick Adams

April 11, 2018 7PM

Derrick Adams works in performance, video, sound, textile/paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His award-winning practice is rooted in the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Shows include MoMA PS1, PERFORMA, Studio Museum in Harlem, and his work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum and Whitney Museum of American Art. His current solo exhibition at the Museum of Art and Design in NYC was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black Americans that pointed to road-side safe havens during the Jim Crow era.

This event is open to current Fine Arts students only. The lecture will be taped and will be available via our Vimeo channel following the event.
