Nicola López

Born Santa Fe, New Mexico. Lives and works in Brooklyn.



Through her work in printmaking, drawing and installation, Nicola López describes and reconfigures our contemporary — primarily urban — landscape. Her interest in describing ‘place’ stems both from traveling, studying and working in other countries, including Mexico, Peru and Morocco, and from her undergraduate studies as an anthropology major at Columbia University, where she received her BA in 1998.Her work has been exhibited throughout the USA and internationally. It has been included in group exhibitions at several galleries and museums, including MoMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museo Rufino Tamayo in Mexico City and the Denver Art Museum. In 2011, López was invited to build an installation in the rotunda of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, as part of the museum's Intervals series.
