Pretty Ugly: Deviant Materialism features painting, sculpture, video and photography that vacillate between the beautiful and the grotesque and elicit visceral reactions of both attraction and repulsion, delight and disquiet. The eight artists in this exhibition build on process and body-based art histories and incorporate performance strategies.

In his first exhibition in Boston, the New York based multidisciplinary artist Derrick Adams will display sculptural objects, photographs and video documentation from performances, along with performative-related sculptural works. This collection of diverse works, representing over a decade of artistic production, possesses the traces of human embodiment and its transformative nature. Visitors will not only experience the world from Adams’ viewpoint, but also with a performative aspect that will bring the objects and artworks to life. Surpassing the limits of medium specificity, the artist’s practice generates a network of subtle references, allusions and hints that tap into numerous registers of experience. Shedding light on persuasive, performative and often duplicitous identities, as well as on architectural objects and iconography, the work he creates also reflects the relationship between man and monument as they coexist in the landscape as representations of one another.
