Happy Wednesday Atmos! Today we’re showcasing New York-based artist, Derrick Adams. Adams works in performance, video, sound and 2D and 3D realms. Adams’s practice focuses on the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, exploring self image and forward projection. His current show at The California African American Museum, Network, examines how television and media shape contemporary culture.
The recipient of the 2016 Joyce Alexander Wein Prize, 2014 S.J. Weiler Award, and a 2009 Louis Comfort Tiffany Award, Adams is in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Studio Museum in Harlem, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and the Birmingham Museum of Art.
If you’re in LA, go see Network before it closes on the 11th!
