About

Tyler Yvette Wilson is a multidisciplinary artist who primarily works with text, photography, and video. She blends autobiographical, current, and historical narratives that discuss the aftershock of colonialism and the foundations of trauma that underlie most of Western society. Tyler studied at Davidson College from 2010 to 2016. After graduating with a B.A. in Studio Art, she attended Oglethorpe University for post-baccalaureate studies. In 2020, she earned her M.F.A. at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in the Mount Royal School of Art, where she was named a MICA Community Endowed Fellow, won the 2019 Graduate Research Development Grant and received the 2020 Mount Royal School of Art’s Emerging Artist Award. Tyler became a semifinalist and was chosen as Judges’ Favorite in the Global Design Graduate Show 2020 and has since attracted the attention of galleries in London, D.C. and Atlanta. Her work has been collected and praised by artists such as Joan Jonas, Martha Rosler, Tania Bruguera, Carolee Schneemann, Ellen Lupton and Dread Scott. Tyler currently lives and works in Atlanta.
