Adler Guerrier, born in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, currently lives and works in Miami, FL. In 2000, Guerrier earned his BFA from the University of Florida/New World School of the Arts. His work has been exhibited in the Whitney Biennial, the Perez Art Museum Miami, and the California African American Museum in Los Angeles. His work has also been featured in many publications such as The New Tropic, ARTNews, and El Nuevo Herald.
According to the David Castillo Gallery, “Adler Guerrier creates visual dialogue between a wunderkammer of materials and techniques. Guerrier improvises between form and function to nimbly subvert space and time in constructions of race, ethnicity, class, and culture. He 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, Guerrier practices a contemporary flaneurie in an impending age of post-demography.”
