Tyler Brownlow-Calkin
Tyler Calkin is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Los Angeles. He received his MFA in Art and Integrated Media from California Institute of the Arts and has since shown his work across the US and internationally. He has also led gameplay-based artist workshops in Nepal and Mexico.

His participatory projects examine social constructions, habits, and anxieties through play and improvisation. Drawing particularly from safety hygiene products, Tyler rearranges material culture into social catalysts. The resulting situations propose new models for interpersonal and inter-object relations.
