Multimedia artist and metalsmith Tiff Massey makes art and jewelry inspired by 1980s hip-hop fashion and her experiences living in Detroit. Building from an examination of the African diaspora, Massey delves into contemporary issues of race, class, and popular culture in large-scale wearable jewelry and sculpture, music, performances, and installations. Drawing from her “Everyday Arsenal” series, the artist transforms the MMA’s Olthoff Gallery into a flashy display of massive hip-hop jewelry, gold, and mirrors in a dynamic exploration of self-identity and fashion. A Cranbrook graduate with an MFA in metalsmithing, Massey is a two-time winner of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge and a 2015 Kresge Arts in Detroit Fellowship recipient.
