Tiffany Smith

For Tropical Girls…

on view until April 1, 2017

In conjunction with the Wassaic Project’s Mill Warming on January 14th, artist and Wassaic Project alum Tiffany Smith will debut her solo exhibition For Tropical Girls… in the ground floor gallery space in Maxon Mill.

Tiffany Smith is a visual artist who uses photography, video, design, and installation to create conceptually based work focused on identity, cultural ambiguity, and representation; particularly within minority communities. Her work examines individual narratives pulled from an array of multi-cultural influences, derived from her upbringing between Miami, Florida, Nassau, Bahamas, and Jamaica, and molded by her current home of Brooklyn, NY. Smith’s practice searches for new perspectives on dominant historical narratives and aims to provide insight into issues surrounding communities and how they are formed, defined, and identified.

Smith received a BA in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design and an MFA in Photo, Video and Related Media from School of Visual Arts, NY. She has been written about in The New York Times, Hyperallergic, and featured on pdnonline and cbsnews.com. Her work has been exhibited internationally and throughout the United States including shows at The National Gallery of Jamaica during the 2014 Jamaica Biennial, Photoville 2015, New York, Photo NOLA, New Orleans; public art installations in Newark Penn Station through The Gateway Project and in Marcus Garvey Park during Flux Art Fair, Harlem; and most recently at Long Gallery, Harlem.

The exhibition will be open from January 14 until April 2017.

On view at Maxon Mills, 37 Furnace Bank Rd, Wassaic, NY 12592
