Studio Lecture Series: Nicola López

Thursday, November 16, 2017 -
5:30pm to 7:00pm
Oshman Hall, McMurtry Building


Human-built Structures: Giants, Hybrids and (Un)Natural Systems

Born in Santa Fe, NM, Nicola López lives and works in Brooklyn and teaches at Columbia University in New York City.  Through her work in installation, drawing and printmaking, López describes and reconfigures our contemporary—primarily urban—landscape.  Her focus on describing ‘place’ stems from an interest in urban planning, architecture and anthropology and it has been fueled by time spent working and traveling in different landscapes. 

López has received support for her work through a NYFA Fellowship and a grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, among others.  Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally, at museums including MoMA - NY, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museo Rufino Tamayo in Mexico City and the Denver Art Museum.  It has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Chazen Museum of Art (Madison, WI) and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.  López’s site-specific work “Un-building Things” is currently on view the Balcony Lounge at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY.

The Studio Lecture Series is sponsored by the Millicent Greenwell Clapp Fund for Studio Art.
