Tiffany Smith (she/her) is an Interdisciplinary Artist from the Caribbean diaspora working between photography, video, installation, and design to define spaces and experiences that oscillate between the roles of visitor and native and parse the definition of home. Using plant matter, design elements, patterning and costuming as cultural signifiers, Smith creates photographic portraits, site responsive installations, user engaged experiences, and assemblages informed by researching histories of representation, experiences of cultural ambiguity, and themes of displacement. Smith’s practice centers on what forms and defines communities of people of color, in particular; how they are identified and represented, and how they persist. Smith earned her B.F.A. in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design and her M.FA. in Photo/Video from School of Visual Arts. She is currently based in Brooklyn, NY, teaches photography at Pratt, ICP and FIT, and recently completed a solo exhibition at The Bronx Museum of the Arts.
