Derrick Adams is a New York-based artist who works in a wide range of media, including performance, installation, sculpture, and photography. He is preoccupied with consumer objects and American iconography, all influenced by pop culture, television, education, and his black male experience in the US. The artist scripts peformative identities by using environments, costumes, as well as daily objects he collects and reconfigures. He disrupts their functions and therefore exposes their presupposed meaning.
