Tuesday 8th February – Nicola Singh
Nicola’s practice encompasses solo and collaborative performance, film, photography and sculptural installation. Her approach is rooted in performance and she extends ideas of liveness to her visual art, pedagogic and research practices. She creates work in response to what’s going on with her a.k.a in response to the politics of her subjective lived experience – and via a critical engagement with contemporary art’s relationship to race and feminism.
Selected forthcoming projects include a ‘resource commission’ for Cinenova FEMINIST FILM + VIDEO, a new performance for Quench Gallery (Margate, UK) and a residency at La Bonne Women and Girls Centre (Barcelona, Spain) as part of the ‘Contested Desires’ programme with D6: Culture In Transit (Newcastle, UK). Nicola is Senior Lecturer in Fine Art and Curation at Manchester School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University and has a practice-based PhD ‘On The Thesis By Performance: a feminist research method for the practice-based PhD’ Northumbria University (2017).
