Derrick Woods-Morrow will be presented by Artadia in the Special Exhibitions section of the 2018 EXPO Chicago. Derrick is one of two recent recipients of the 2018 Chicago Artadia Awards. “Creatively modifying relations of power, Woods-Morrow’s recent work combines elements of sexuality and interracial affinity, as well as poetic engagements with questions about how the things and beings of the world change as they move—and are moved.” The Awardees were selected by Jordan Carter (Assistant Curator, Contemporary Art, The Art Institute of Chicago), Darby English (Carl Darling Buck Professor of Art History, Modern and Contemporary Art, Cultural Studies, UChicago and Adjunct Curator, the Museum of Modern Art), Courtenay Finn (Curator, Aspen Art Museum), and Jamie Isenstein (Artist).
