Emerging Artist Series featuring Tianna Bracey
August 19, 2022 - October 22, 2022
SSCAC IS PROUD TO FEATURE ARTIST TIANNA BRACEY FOR A SOLO PRESENTATION OF RECENT WORKS.
Tianna Bracey is an emerging artist employing portraiture as a vessel for connection. Her most recent series of work reimagine space as connection to ancestry. Her portraits are transformed into whimsical dreamscapes to amplify the presence of generational storytelling through repurposing and reinventing elements from daily surroundings. Each work aims to consider the ways in which familial ties, nostalgia, and memory can be woven into the fabric of daily life as an invitation to find purpose, strength and solace through heritage.
Tianna received a Bachelors of Art in Art History from the University of Missouri (Columbia, MO). Her work has been exhibited at The Chicago Athletic Association (Chicago, IL), Happy Gallery (Chicago, IL), The Martin (Chicago, IL) and Zhou B Art Center (Chicago, IL). In 2021, she was awarded the Curious Creators Grant from curious elixirs (Brooklyn, NY) and the New Futures award from Saatchi Art’s The Other Art Fair (London, UK). The following year, she was a recipient of the SPARK grant from the Chicago Artists Coalition (Chicago, IL).
We’re thrilled to feature Tianna as our first exhibiting artist to be showcased in our micro-gallery, and hope you’ll join us!
DJ ShamPain Wishes will also join us for the opening reception.
