Conceived and performed by Derrick Adams, The Entertainer incorporates a musical interpretation of white, gray, and black noise composed by Philippe Treuille, and a projection by Ramon Silva. During his live performance, Adams acts as a human Beatbox, mimicking sounds echoing from a TV, microphone, and speaker, while including sound bites from media programming. The work's graphic imagery is inspired by the bold formal structure of Russian Constructivist propaganda, advertising, and broadcasting. The Entertainer is a commentary on the effects of media bombardment in today's society.

Derrick Adams is a multidisciplinary New York-based artist whose practice is rooted in Deconstructivist philosophies, as well as perceptions of the ideals attached to objects, colors, textures, symbols and ideologies - and how they are formed. His work focuses on the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface while exploring the shape-shifting force of popular culture in our lives.

Adams is an alumnus of The Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, The Marie Walsh Sharpe Space Program and received his BFA from Pratt Institute and his MFA from Columbia University. His exhibition and performance highlights include: PS1/MoMA Greater New York 2005, Performa 05, Brooklyn Museum Open House, The Kitchen NYC 2010, Collette Blanchard Gallery 2010 and The Bearden Project at Studio Museum in Harlem 2011. He is the recipient of a 2009 Louis Comfort Tiffany Award and an honored finalist for the 2011 William H. Johnson Prize. Adams lives and works in New York, NY.
