Adler Guerrier is a Haitian-American multimedia artist who lives and works in Miami, Florida. Guerrier roams the streets of Miami, absorbing urban impressions before producing mixed media drawings, photographs, and videos conveying the collective experience of cities. 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.
The work centers around the act of observation and how it contributes to greater understanding and greater participation in the world that we live in.Adler Guerrier
