Jacqueline Tarry describes herself as an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She received a B.A. in Philosophy from SUNY Buffalo State and participated in the Whitney’s ISP program in 2003. Her work “is a visual and sonic confrontation of the dominant narratives that exist in American culture.” She is particularly “interested in the myriad ways our idea of the ‘historic’ resonate throughout and in fact, actively inform our contemporary lived experience.” In her collaborative work as McCallum & Tarry received grants from NYFA (2008 and 2012), National Endowment for the Arts, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Her work has been shown at Prospect1 Biennial, 11th Havana Biennial, Site Santa Fe, Tokyo Wonder Site, Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, and the Burchfield Penney Art Center.
