Biography / Mashonda Tifrere

Mashonda Tifrere is a portrait of courage and a change agent. Singer, songwriter, artist and mother, Mashonda has fulfilled her calling to combat gender bias by empowering female artists and curators from around the world.
For the past four years she’s represented and mentored artists, curated five international exhibitions, managed booths at art fairs and interned for various galleries. In 2016 she studied and graduated from the prestigious Christie’s Education in New York City with a degree in Art Business.

Partnering with Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD and Gucci’s Chime for Change, Mashonda launched ArtLeadHer, appropriately enough, on International Women’s Day in 2016. ArtLeadHer is the remarkable platform she began pioneering in March 2016 to celebrate and draw awareness to female artists in a male-dominated art world.

ArtLeadHER seeks to achieve its mission by launching its Foundation in summer 2018, ultimately providing underserved and underrepresented girls in the New York area with ongoing access to the visual arts and its professional community.
