Statement

Tiffany Smith is a visual artist who uses photography, video, 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 from the Caribbean diaspora, derived from her upbringing between Miami, Florida, Nassau, Bahamas, and Jamaica. 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. Smith’s 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, International Photo Festival, Leiden, Netherlands, and Photo NOLA, New Orleans. Smith currently resides and works in Brooklyn, NY.
