Derrick Adams è un'artista multidisciplinare che vive a New York e realizza performance, video, suono, pittura, collage su carta e stoffa, e scultura multimediale.

Il suo lavoro è radicato nelle teorie decostruttiviste, utilizzando la frammentazione e manipolazione della struttura e delle superfici, e l'accostamento di forme complesse e improbabili. Usando queste tecniche, Adams indaga l'influenza della cultura popolare e dei media sulla costruzione e percezione del sé.

Ha conseguito il suo MFA presso la Columbia University, il BFA presso il Pratt Institute, ed è un ex-alunno della Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, e del programma Sharpe-Walentas Studio, nonché vincitore del Joyce Alexander Wein Artist Prize, Louis Comfort Tiffany Award, S.J. Weiler Award e Agnes Martin Fellowship. Ha esposto e performato al MoMA PS1, Brooklyn Museum of Art, PERFORMA, Studio Museum di Harlem, Accademia di Musica di Brooklyn, California African American Museum, al Metropolitan Museum of Art e al Museum of Arts and Design, oltre ad importanti gallerie e istituzioni. Il lavoro di Adams è nelle collezioni permanenti dello Studio Museum di Harlem, del Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, del Birmingham Museum, del Metropolitan Museum of Art e del Whitney Museum of American Art.

A New York è rappresentato da Rhona Hoffman Gallery.
