Olivia Tripp Morrow


Join AAC’s Curator of Exhibitions Blair Murphy for a virtual studio visit with AAC Resident Artist Olivia Tripp Morrow. Working with found, recycled, donated, and discarded materials, Morrow explores themes related to the body, sexuality, and gender. In January of 2020, the artist underwent major back surgery to halt the progression of scoliosis. Her most recent work deals with her experience of surgery and how the physical transformations it involved has impacted her relationship to her own body.

This studio visit was part of the virtual city-wide Arts Community Day hosted by Halcyon featuring fellows and community partners from across DC. This convening of local organizations showcases the resilience and creativity of artists and practitioners throughout the DMV.
