Through her work in installation, drawing and printmaking, Nicola 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 was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her undergraduate degree in Anthropology from Columbia University in 1998, attended the Skowhegan School in 2002 and in 2004 received her MFA from Columbia University. In 2011, López was invited to build an installation in the rotunda of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York, NY). López’s work has been exhibited throughout the USA and internationally including, The Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Los Angeles, CA), the Museo Rufino Tamayo (Mexico City) and the Denver Art Museum (Denver, CO).
