Gagosian has recently announced its worldwide representation of artist Derrick Adams. The gallery's inaugural exhibition of Adams's new paintings will occur in Beverly Hills in September 2023.
Adams's work is represented in various forms, including paintings, sculptures, collages, performances, videos, and public projects. He celebrates and expands the conversation around contemporary Black life and culture through his art, showcasing scenes of perseverance and normalcy. Adams has developed an iconography of happiness, leisure, and joy that is unique to him. His style combines representational imagery with planar Cubist geometry, producing multifaceted faces and figures that highlight the richness of the Black experience.
