About

Born in West Virginia, New York based artist Vincent Tiley received a MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. His work has been featured and reviewed in Art in America, Chicago Tribune, Performa, and The New York Times.

Vincent Tiley's works have been collected by the Whitney Library, the Leather Archives and Museum, Yale University Library, and the Watson Library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Tiley’s paintings, performances, and video works take the visual and material cultures of queer desire and survival as primary sources. Influenced by fashion, fetish, medicine, protest, and science fiction, Tiley’s work combines these vernaculars with the methodologies of abstraction and durational performance. His garment-based durational performances queer clothing’s myriad of uses, which often involves combining multiple performers into one sculptural and painted form. In doing so, the garments no longer function as outward signifiers adorned by an interior self; instead, they fully disguise, restrain, and extend their wearers—irreverent of the corporeal boundaries of individual selves.
