Tara Subkoff (born December 10, 1972) is an American artist, actress, and fashion designer. Tara has acted in over 30 films, including "As Good As It Gets", "All Over Me", "Last Days of Disco", "The Notorious Bettie Page", and the new Bennett Miller film which will be released next year: "Foxcatcher", starring Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Steve Carell and Vanessa Redgrave.
Tara began Imitation of Christ in 2000 with Matt Damhave, enlisting Chloe Sevigny as Creative Director. This was an art project that became an overnight international sensation. Every piece was sewn by hand and recycled from vintage, thrift and goodwill shops. Tara invented the concept and word "up-cycling" and created pieces of wearable recycled art with her fashion shows which garnered her a cult following.
Tara has shown at the Paris Couture Shows and she created a ten day installation and continuous performance piece at the Carlton Festival of the Arts in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She also conceptualized a performance piece in a group show curated by Dimitri Antonitsis in Hydra, Greece.
Tara recently created a large performance / installation piece at the Bortolami Gallery in NYC. The performance consisted of over 50 women aged 7 to 70 years. Most recently Tara created a performance piece with one opera singer at the United Nations building in NYC.
