Melanie Roger Gallery is pleased to present a selection of new and earlier work to celebrate TIFFANY SINGH being a 2017 recipient of the New Generation Award from the NZ Arts Foundation.
Tiffany Singh is a Social Practice artist, specialising in socially engaged art outcomes. Born in New Zealand of Indian & Pacific decent. Her practice explores the relationship between engagement in arts, culture & subjective well-being. Tiffany has worked on sustainable community outreach, exploring engagement in the arts that are focused on expanding research within the social sciences. Her interest in cultural preservation combined with strong social discourse has seen her use the arts as a vehicle for education, outreach & empowerment.
Tiffany has created significant works of scale both in New Zealand & internationally. Her works often suggest positive impact by facilitating audiences through fine art frameworks to engender policy & advocacy of social cohesion. Her Social Practice approach is informed by Eastern Philosophy with a lens towards acknowledging traditional devices that affect well-being to foster unique art & social impact outcomes.
This solo exhibition of work comes just prior to the unveiling of a major new project at Te Papa Tongarewa by Tiffany Singh as well her departure for a three month Asia NZ Foundation residency at the Taipai Artist Village in Taiwan.
