Biography :

Fatimah Tuggar (Born in 1967) is a Nigerian photographer.

Fatimah Tuggar (born august 15. 1967) is a Nigerian-born artist who creates alluring digital photomontages that juxtapose scenes from African and American daily life. Her works comment on potentially sensitive themes such as ethnicity, technology and post-colonial culture, although the artist chooses not to extend a didactic message, but rather to elucidate cultural nuances that go beyond obvious cross-cultural comparison. The earnest yet vibrant colors of the photo-collages enhance the deadpan effect of her technically savvy works. Tuggar completed her MFA at Yale University in 1992. Since then she has exhibited internationally at venues such as the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art (2005), Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels (2003), Centre Georges Pompidou (2005), Paris and the Bamako Biennalle, Mali (2003), to name a few. She has received numerous grants from distinguished institutions such as The Rema Mann Hort Foundation, New York, the Civitella Ranieri Fellowship, and the The Wheeler Foundation, Brooklyn.
