“Derrick Adams: Buoyant”

The Hudson River Museum is open to the public and has extended the Derrick Adams: Buoyant exhibition through August 23, 2020. Visitors are required to purchase timed-entry tickets and make reservations in advance. For more info, visit hrm.org/plan-your-visit.

Derrick Adams: Buoyant is a new exhibition showcasing work that delves deeply and fearlessly into the nooks and crannies of Black life and culture, unveiling a nuanced wholeness of humanity. The multidisciplinary, New York-based artist depicts a world where joy, love, leisure, and even prosaic normalcy play central roles, methodically filling the many voids and omissions in popular visual culture. This is the first museum exhibition of Adams’ Floaters series, will debut We Came to Party and Plan, a new body of related works the artist conceived during the summer of 2019. 

The exhibition is organized by the Hudson River Museum, and co-curated by James E. Bartlett, founder of Open Art, and Laura Vookles, Chair of the Hudson River Museum’s Curatorial Department.
