DERRICK ADAMS

Derrick Adams lives and works in Brooklyn. Adams received his M.F.A. from Columbia University in 2003 and B.F.A. from Pratt Institute in 1996. His colorful, multimedia work embraces the dualities of child and adult, and pure and perverse, while delving into superheroes and other narrative constructs of childhood. His performances often incorporate his pseudo-educational furry animal characters in manipulated environments. Adams has had solo exhibitions at Marvelli Gallery, PARTICIPANT INC, Triple Candie, and Jack Tilton Gallery in New York and has been included in group exhibitions throughout New York, including P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
