Alum Tiffany Smith's upcoming exhibitions

Make Me Feel Like A Woman

Oct. 2 - Nov. 13, 2016



This exhibition explores traditional thoughts of gender, femininity, and womanhood and encourages dialogue on their evolution given shifting social constructs. It seeks to engage the audience on what it means to be a woman, what is it that makes a woman feel feminine, what is masculine or feminine, and what signifies female.

She has created a site specific installation - "Panic Room: A Safe Space for Reflection on the Value of Black Lives" within this exhibit. The piece focuses on collective healing from collective trauma and is activated by user engagement.
