Tiffany Shlain is an acclaimed multi-media artist working across film, text and performance. For her first solo exhibition in San Francisco, Tiffany introduces new perspectives evoked by the compelling relationship between time and nature through her current exploration in time-based media, photography and sculpture. The exhibition is presented by the National Women’s History Museum based in Washington, D.C. in partnership with Women Connect4Good, Inc.
Tiffany is known for bringing forth complex ideas in new ways with humor and provocative insights. “In Human Nature, I use a feminist, philosophical, and ecological lens to explore the humility and realignment we feel when we view ourselves in the context of deep time and nature. I want to conjure up the sublime: our sense of perspective, smallness and awe created by expansive vistas and towering trees that have stood as witnesses for thousands of years.” Tiffany says.
“Everything Tiffany does is so timely and important for us to understand and know. Much of her work has long focused on gender and women’s rights and leadership. Human Nature is adding to her impressive body of work,” Dr. Nancy said. “This exhibit reveals a new perspective about women and power throughout history. Women Connect4Good and the National Women’s History Museum are pleased to help Tiffany tell this story in such an awe-inspiring way. It has been exciting to watch it come together, and I urge everyone to come see it and share it with your daughters, your sons and all the generations to come.”
Honored by Newsweek as one of their “Women Shaping the 21st Century, Tiffany is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker, founder of the Webby Awards, and author of the national bestselling book 24/6: Giving up Screens One Day a Week to Get More Time, Creativity, and Connection, winner of the Marshall McLuhan Outstanding Book Award. Her work has received over 80 awards and distinctions, including selection for the Albert Einstein Foundation’s 100 Visionaries continuing Einstein’s legacy. The US State Department has selected Tiffany and her films to represent North America at embassies around the world.
Human Nature, opens November 2, 2022 at SHACK15 in the San Francisco Ferry Building, where Tiffany is the current artist-in-residence. To learn more about the exhibition go to TiffanyShlain.com/art.
