“Derrick Adams: Interior Life” at Luxembourg & Dayan, NYC

 
On View presents images from noteworthy exhibitions
 

FOR HIS LATEST EXHIBITION, New York-based artist Derrick Adams is displaying new works on paper in a series of imagined interior environments at Luxembourg & Dayan. The gallery is housed in a tiny townhouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan where collage portraits from Adams’s ongoing Deconstruction Worker series are installed on custom wallpaper depicting the public and private spaces of a precisely designed home, rich with color and personality. According to the gallery, “Interior Life” is “inspired by a tenet of Catholic theology that describes ‘a life which seeks God in everything’ and serves as “a mediation on the intimate spaces of one’s mind and home, each an analog for the other.” CT

Curated by Francesco Bonami, “Derrick Adams: Interior Life” is on view at Luxembourg & Dayan, New York, N.Y., Feb. 26-April 20, 2019
