Make a gift to help keep Atlanta Contemporary free, safe, and open to all.
Adrienne Elise Tarver is an interdisciplinary artist based in Atlanta, GA, and Brooklyn, NY with a practice that spans painting, sculpture, installation, photography, and video. Her work addresses the complexity and invisibility of the Black female identity in the Western landscape – from the history within domestic spaces to the fantasy of the tropical seductress.
She has exhibited nationally and abroad, including solo or two-person exhibitions with Dinner Gallery in New York; Ochi Projects in Los Angeles; Hollis Taggart in New York; Wedge Curatorial in Toronto, Canada; Wave Hill in the Bronx, NY; BRIC Project Room in Brooklyn; and A-M Gallery in Sydney, Australia. She has been commissioned for projects through the New York MTA, the Public Art Fund, Google, Art Aspen, and Pulse Art Fair. She has been featured in online and print publications including the New York Times, Brooklyn Magazine, ArtNet, Blouin Art Info, Whitewall Magazine, and Hyperallergic, among others. Tarver received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and BFA from Boston University.
