Tiffany Chung is internationally noted for her research-based multi-media installations and meticulously detailed cartographic works that examine conflict, migration, urban transformation and environmental impact in relation to the history of specific places.  Chung’s work remaps historical and collective memories of traumatized topographies, creates interventions into the spatial and political narratives produced through statecraft, and unveils the connection between imperialist ideologies and visions of modernity. Her work has been exhibited extensively, with exhibitions at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington; the 21st Biennale of Sydney; Gwangju Biennale; MoMA, New York; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark; the 56th Venice Biennale; the Musée d’Art Contemporain, Nimes; the Sharjah Biennial, UAE; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among many others. Chung is a 2018-2020 Jane Lombard Fellow at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.
