Bio/About

5.jpg
 
 
 

It all started when...

Derrick Woods-Morrow (b.1990. Brown Summit, NC) is a multidisciplinary Chicago-based artist working in photography, sculpture, installation, and performance. His practice navigates and negotiates sexual identity by fragmenting notions of representation, exploring personhood, & reimagining ways to understand power dynamics as they pertain to the unfortunate pre-established understandings of consent to my body - to your body - to all of our bodies - holy vibration or otherwise mundane things.

 

A recipient of the 2015 Fellowship in the Visual Arts by the College Association of Art, Carol Becker Dean's Merit Scholarship & the Graduate Dean Professional Development Award, Woods-Morrow received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago 16’.

 

He is an Alum of the Fire Island Artist Residency 16’, Terry Plumming Scholar & Acre Residency Alum 15’, Latitude Chicago Artist in Residence 17’ & is currently a Chicago Artist Coalition 2017-2018 BOLT Resident. He is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Photography and Teaching Artist at the University of Illinois Chicago.

 

His exhibition highlights include: The Sand is Ours at Lesley University’s Vandernoot Gallery & Rhode Island University’s Chazan Family Gallery (Solo exhibitions); Ground Floor: A Biennial Exhibition of New Art from Chicago, Hyde Park Art Center; STEADY MESS, Bureau of General Services – Queer Division in Manhattan (in collaboration with the Fire Island Artist Residency); Blindspots, Xpace Cultural Centre in Toronto [in collaboration with Toronto Pride]; 50 x 50 Invitational, The Chicago Cultural Centre; and New Work: New Art at SAIC, The Sullivan Galleries.
