Adler Guerrier (b. 1975) creates visual dialogue between a wunderkammer of materials and techniques. He improvises between form and function to nimbly subvert space and time in constructions of race, ethnicity, class, and culture. Adler calls upon the democratizing nature of collage and the authority of formal composition to designate to art history an axis of contemporary identity critique. Often chronicling the hybridity and juxtaposition in his immediate environs, he practices a contemporary flaneurie in an impending age of post-demography.
Adler was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and lives and works in Miami, FL, where he received a BFA at the New World School of the Arts. In 2015, he had a solo exhibition at Pérez Art Museum Miami, Miami, FL. He has exhibited work at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami, FL; The Bass Museum of Art, Miami, FL; Harn Musem of Art, Gainesville, FL; and The Whitney Biennial 2008. His works can be found in public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, NY. His work has appeared in Art Forum, Art in America, The New York Times and ARTNews, among others.
