Co-Founder and Senior Contributor, New York City
Tiffany Liu was born in the suburbs of Atlanta, USA. Growing up, Tiffany partook in many activities, one being drawing and painting. Art became her preferred mode of communication and is how Tiffany makes sense of society, politics and her innermost thoughts. Tiffany is now a student of NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Studies with a concentration titled "Reimagining Contemporary Art History" focusing on 21st Century Artists and Social Change, incorporating art history with a sociological, philosophical, and political framework. In 2016, she interned under Roselee Goldberg's mentorship at PERFORMA and has, in the past years, been closely working with Afro-Asian art collective BUFU and more specifically with NYC-based Yellow Jacket Collective. She is currently planning her first curation project exploring Asian American minority rights in New York City.

Through her travel and academic study she continues to grow upon a personal interest in museum curation and interactive art. She looks forward to combining her personal and professional interests in ever-increasingly creative and global ways.
