A collaborative artist team since 1998, Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry have worked and exhibited globally, seeking to surface and discuss issues revolving around marginalized members of society. Their work, which moves fluidly between large-scale public projects, performative sculpture, painting, photography, video and self-portraiture, challenges audiences to face issues of race and social justice in communities, history, and the family. Embedded within their work, whether it is of an historical, personal, or civic-based nature, is their standing as an interracial couple.
The artists are represented by Galerie Nordine Zidoun in Paris and Luxembourg and Nichido Contemporary Art in Tokyo. During the past year the artists have participated in Prospect.1 Biennial in New Orleans, completed a public commission for Atlanta Celebrates Photography and had solo exhibitions in Paris, Tokyo and Luxembourg. McCallum and Tarry have been commissioned to complete the Malcolm X Memorial for the intersection of New York's Central Park and Malcolm X Boulevard.
McCallum holds an MFA from Yale, and Tarry completed the Whitney ISP program in 2003.
The couple lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
