Tivon Rice


New Media Artist Tivon Rice is currently featured in a group exhibition with Lawrimore Project in Seattle. Lawrimore will exhibit new sculpture and installation by the artist again in March-April of this year, and last year they featured his work in the Aqua Art Miami art fair. An MFA graduate from the University of Washington, Rice creates work that explores how traditional methods of learning are influenced by mass media and digital technology. The artist embraces the potential of digital media as a social vehicle and experiments with both video and sculptural objects to examine visual perception and mass critical analysis. In 2006, the artist received a Trust Fellowship from the Joan Mitchell Foundation and exhibited “The History of Television: 1974-2006″ with Gallery 4Culture in Seattle. In 2007, Rice will be featured in an exhibition with the Art Institute of Portland in Portland Oregon.
