> DESCRIPTION

DERRICK ADAMS in collaboration with Michael Chuapoco

A pop up featuring a collection of wearable pieces by multidisciplinary visual artist Derrick Adams set in a responsive display environment by industrial designer Michael Chuapoco.

In his latest sculptural project Derrick Adams seeks to combine the historical references of Marcus Garvey and the Black Star Line as a fashion concept with a constructed aesthetic and visual point of view of an academic and collegiate persona. This romantic revision of Garveyism is adapted and re-imagined as a mainstream urban fashion movement.
