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 ability to address the complicated and layered issues of race and power as a mixed-race artists collaborative.
The artists are represented by Galerie Zidoun in Luxembourg and Nichido Contemporary Art in Tokyo. The artists participated in Prospect.1 Biennial in New Orleans, and more recently the 11th Havana Biennial. Exhibitions of their work have been presented by the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, MD; Tokyo Wonder Site, Tokyo, Japan; Spelman College, Atlanta, GA; and the Burchfield Penny Art Center, Buffalo, NY. The artists have shown extensively through out the United States, Europe and Asia.
McCallum holds an MFA from Yale and Tarry completed the Whitney ISP program in 2003.
The artists studios are located in Brooklyn, NY where they also live.
