On the opening day of Ötzi, an exhibition by Nicole Wilson opening at Praise Shadows Art Gallery, join a talk between Wilson and artist Nina Katchadourian, Professor at NYU Gallatin. This program will provide an overview of Wilson’s journey from the beginnings of Ötzi to the current exhibition.
Nicole Wilson’s Ötzi exhibition at Praise Shadows is the world premiere of this work. After nearly 10 years of research and time-based documentation, this exhibition is the nexus where time, artistic media, and technology meet.
Nina Katchadourian is an interdisciplinary artist whose work includes video, performance, sound, sculpture, photography and public projects. Her video "Accent Elimination" was included at the 2015 Venice Biennale in the Armenian pavilion, which won the Golden Lion for Best National Participation.
Nicole Wilson is a visual artist with an MFA in Art Theory and Practice from Northwestern University and a BFA in Sculpture from Tyler School of Art, Temple University. Through mold-making, conceptual conceits, and long process-driven projects, she makes objects that articulate and own absences and empty spaces. Wilson has sent the President of the United States a letter every day for the past 12 years and had her father design her coffin. In 2019, she was an Artist-in-Residency at the Bemis Center (Omaha, NE), and is currently an Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, AR).
