Tamar Monhait ’98

The life of multidisciplinary artist Tamar Monhait was cut tragically short when the bicycle she was riding collided with a garbage truck making a left turn.

Originally from Chicago, Tamar attended Reed, but got a bachelor’s in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago. As an artist, she explored process, ritual, music mathematics, technology, and time. Her work included photographs, paintings, and music, and she participated in group shows in Portland at Disjecta, Hall Gallery, Pacific Northwest College of Art, the Mark Woolley Gallery, and the Jace Gace restaurant, and the Newberg Gallery at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. She had solo exhibitions at Stumptown Downtown, and was also exhibited by Studio Nemo. Tamar was the inaugural curator for Disjecta Vestibule, an independent project space dedicated to showing dynamic site-specific installations and collaborations.

Appeared in Reed magazine: March 2018
