Project Description

Derrick Adams and Mickalene Thomas both utilize fragmentation to challenge the representation of Black people and culture in art and society—revealing how our individual and communal identities are formed by experience and the relationship between self and public image. Known for her work in painting, installation, and video, Thomas combines patterned furniture, textiles, and wallpaper to create disjointed environments for her subjects, whereas Adams uses collage, painting, and installation, occasionally framed through the imaginary or speculative, to address cultural perceptions and expectations.

July 1977
