Matt Storm is a photo-based artist, making photographs, performances, installations and sculptures in Washington, D.C. Storm’s work engages with the theme of identity, and the question “who are we, and how do we know?” He approaches this question through self-portraiture, and visual topics including transgender and queer issues, family, and community.
Storm has shown work in solo & group shows in Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
In 2019, as part of May is All About Trans, Storm also curated what may be the first extended-view group show of entirely artists who identify as transgender, non-binary, two spirit, agender, and genderfluid. This show was on view for six weeks in Washington, D.C., and received much acclaim in the transgender community.
Storm serves on the leadership team of the LGBTQ Caucus of the Society for Photographic Education. Storm is in the inaugural group of artists with studios at STABLE Arts in Washington, D.C.
Storm grew up in Princeton, NJ. He attended Dartmouth College, and majored in Studio Art, and received the Perspectives on Design Award, given to the top graduating studio art major(s). He also transitioned to living as a transgender masculine person during this time. Storm has worked at the Marpha Foundation in Nepal, Dartmouth College’s studio art department, and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA.
