Tiffany Calvert

Assistant Professor


Tiffany Calvert's work has been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions including Lawrimore Project in Seattle, Visual Arts Gallery at SVA New York, and The Lab in San Francisco. She has been a recipient of a Geraldine R. Dodge Fellowship and residencies at the ArtOmi International Arts Center (NY) and Djerassi Resident Artists Program (CA). In 2010 she was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. Her most recent solo exhibition was mounted with Carl & Sloan Contemporary in Portland, OR.

Professor Calvert's paintings combine disparate images in order to explore the porousness of reference and representation. Her studio research extends to media theory in reality television and surveillance, and the effect of media on the substantiation of the image.
