In Conversation: Derrick Adams and Ellen Rudolph

April 9, 2022 - 2:00 PM

Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Boulevard, Cleveland, OH  44106

In his vibrant paintings, collages, sculptures, and installations, Derrick Adams probes the dynamic ways in which identity and personal narrative intersect with American popular culture, art history, consumerism, and the Black experience. The nine monumental paintings in the CMA exhibition Derrick Adams: LOOKS were inspired by wig shops in the artist’s Brooklyn neighborhood and show those adornments as powerful tools of Black self-representation. 
Hear Adams discuss his debut exhibition in Cleveland and his multidisciplinary practice with Ellen Rudolph, curator and senior director of Cleveland Clinic’s art program.
