Tiffany Trenda is an award-winning new media performance artist. Her work explores the relationship of the female body to today’s ever-changing technologies by interchanging her identity with screens to represent how we conceal and reveal ourselves through our devices.
She received her BFA from Art Center College of Design and her MFA from UCLA Design and Media Arts program. In 2009, she introduced “Entropy” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She was invited to perform at the 2010 World Expo, in Shanghai, China at the British Pavilion. She also performed at Broad Art Museum, Architecture + Design Museum, Los Angeles Contemporary Art Exhibitions, Boulder Contemporary Art Museum, and the Italian Cultural Institute. Trenda was included in the performance program at the Metamorphoses of the Virtual – 100 Years of Art and Freedom during the 55th annual Venice Biennale. Trenda has exhibited at the Faena Art Center in Buenos Aires for the highly publicized show, “Auto Body,” and her work was included in the special projects section for Context Art Miami. In 2017 she exhibited at the Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City and was on a panel for SXSW.
More recently, her work was included in “Neotopia” at Art Center Nabi in South Korea, Brand Library and Art Center, and the Alliance of Women in Media Arts and Sciences at UC Santa Barbara. Trenda’s work is in the permeant collection of the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
