Tiffany Smith

Tiffany Smith

Tiffany Smith is an interdisciplinary artist from the Caribbean diaspora working in photography, video, installation, and design. Using plant matter, design elements, patterning, and costuming as cultural signifiers, Smith creates photographic portraits, site-responsive installations, user-engaged experiences, and assemblages focused on identity, representation, cultural ambiguity, and displacement. Smith’s practice centers on what forms and defines communities of color — and in particular — how they are identified, represented, and how they persist. Smith is based in Brooklyn, New York, and is currently a co-director of Ortega y Gasset Projects in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
