Lipscomb University’s OPEN Gallery, located in the Nashville Arcade, is pleased to present a survey of the bottom of the United States, featuring the recent work of Nicole Wilson. Her work borrows from the lineage of feminist performance art from the 1970s and 1980s. It is displayed in a wide array of media. The exhibit will be on display, to be viewed by appointment, throughout the month of October.
Nicole Wilson is a visual artist living and working in Chicago, Ill. She calls forth a space of longing to attest to the absences between her body and the specific markers from history and contemporary culture that she finds an affinity towards. This affinity is reworked into a commentary on the shape of and the politics of lived female experience. Whether it is connecting to an iconic male celebrity or a lyrical place on American soil, the distance between these specific markers is circumvented and made palpable. The resulting works of art attempt to redefine their placeless-ness and exist in a space outside traditional realms of artistic display.
