As a coincidence with some of our readers they may come by hand or have plans planned this summer in the city of skyscrapers. In it and within MAD (Museum of Arts and Design) of New York, are exhibited for the first time the works of Derrick Adams, a multidisciplinary artist based in that city that works in collage, an original decorative idea if you want to invest in art and revindicate equality from your home. Apart from everything, just walking through the exhibition and appreciating another artistic typology is always interesting. But if in your case it won't be one thing or the other, we approach a brushstroke of its striking exhibition.
From January 25, 2018 until August 12, 2018 the will be active "Sanctuary" exhibition. A sample of perfomance collage, video, sound, textile, paper and multimedia sculpture. Derrick Adams revindicates equality between the black race and from his expressiveness as an artist he examines strongly the popular culture and the media on the perception and construction of self-image. To do this, he manipulates his works with surface or raised structures in improbable ways. Which is the same as using all kinds of materials to achieve his work, in which safe destinations for an African-American traveler are reimagined.
In Santuary or Sanctuary, the artist reflects on the plight of working black people, in the before and after civil movements in America. His exhibition is curated by Dexter Wimberly (Executive Director of Aljira) a Center for Contemporary Art (Newark) With the support of the MAD (Museum of Arts and Design) they give visibility to these emerging artists of color, who all have their right to express creativity and exhibit their designs like any other person. Derrick Adams is proud to be endorsed by the Tilton Gallery. Personally not all of his creations would combine in my home, but the odd ones would have room. You know, if you are in the photogenic city of New York you can stroll through the totally free exhibition.
