Derrick Adams: The Nancy G. Unobskey '60 Visiting Artist

The Studio Art Department proudly presents our 2023 Nancy G. Unobskey '60 Visiting Artist, Derrick Adams. He will have a conversation with Thomas James about his work & the exhibition in the Silber Gallery. We'll get a glimpse of his 20+ years of creating artwork. Taken from his website:

"Derrick Adams is a Baltimore-born, Brooklyn-based artist whose critically admired work spans painting, collage, sculpture, performance, video, and sound installations. His multidisciplinary practice engages the ways in which individuals’ ideals, aspirations, and personae become attached to specific objects, colors, textures, symbols, and ideologies. His work probes the influence of popular culture on the formation of self-image, and the relationship between man and monument as they coexist and embody one another. Adams is also deeply immersed in questions of how African American experiences intersect with art history, American iconography, and consumerism."
