Tiffany Chung’s interdisciplinary practice enquires into a complex framework of social, political, economic, and environmental processes, at times entwined in landscape archaeology and historical ecology. Chung analyzes and materializes researched findings into hand-drawn and embroidered cartographic works and mixed media installations consisting of drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, and videos. Chung’s work strives to create interventions into the narrative produced through statecraft or is dominant in the public sphere with people’s memories and lived experiences.
Chung’s upcoming projects include a public installation at the National Mall, DC and a solo exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art, slated to open in August 2023. Chung has exhibited at museums and biennials worldwide including MoMA, NY, USA; Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM), DC, USA; British Museum, UK; Louisiana MoMA & SMK, Denmark; Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Germany; Nobel Peace Center, Norway; Venice Biennale, Italy; Sharjah Biennale, UAE; Biennial de Cuenca, Ecuador; 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan; Gwangju Bienalle, Korea, among other venues.
