Description

American artist Terry Adkins (1953-2014) created a pioneering body of work that blends sculpture, sound, performance, video, and printmaking. Combining deep interests in history, language, and music, he devoted his practice to upholding the legacies of larger-than-life figures, often from the canon of African American culture. Mining historical and industrial sites, archives, and his own neighborhood, Adkins would collect what others might consider detritus and carefully transform these materials into artworks of great ambition and imagination.
