Olivia Tripp Morrow is a multimedia artist based in the metropolitan Washington, DC area whose work broadly examines gender, sexuality, beauty, and the body. In January 2020, Morrow’s body was surgically augmented to halt a progressive spine disorder, which brought the focus of her practice to the physical body: kinesthesia, pain, and resilience. Her most recent works explore the abilities and limitations of her “new” body through a wide variety of mediums, including paint, embroidery, graphite, ceramic sculpture, performance, and video.
Morrow has exhibited her work in numerous solo exhibitions, including Body, Joy, Cage, Scar at Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington (2021), Nine Patch at IA & A at Hillyer (2019) and Gradient at Anacostia Arts Center (2019). Her work has been included in national and international group exhibitions.
Morrow is a resident artist at the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington, where she also serves as an artist representative on the Museum’s board of directors. She received her BFA in Sculpture from Syracuse University (2013) and currently lives and works in northern Virginia.
