New York based artist Derrick Adams (b. 1970) destabilizes cultural understanding of urban and identity politics through performance, collage, sculpture and installation. His ongoing collage series, "Deconstruction Worker," is motivated by architectural vocabulary. Influenced by the exploration of the urban dweller, Adams implements geometric constructions of human figures in an ambiguous state between construction and deconstruction.
Adams received his MFA from Columbia University in New York and BFA in Art & Design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. He is the recipient of a 2009 Louis Comfort Tiffany Award and an honored finalist for the 2011 William H. Johnson Prize. Exhibitions include Studio Museum in Harlem, PS1 MoMA, Bowery Poetry Club and Performa Hub, New York.
