About

Tara Nicholson

Tara Nicholson

Tara Nicholson has travelled throughout the Arctic to document climatology sometimes with a blurred line between sci-fi and actual science. Nicholson has exhibited across Canada including the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Modern Fuel Artist-run Centre (Kingston), Parisian Laundry (Montreal), Two Rivers Art Gallery (Prince George) and the Burnaby Art Gallery.

She teaches at the University of Victoria, holds a BFA from Ryerson University and an MFA from Concordia University. Recently she attended "Earthed" a climate-centered residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts and has received funding from the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. This year Nicholson embarked on her PhD at the University of British Columbia to produce a body of exploratory landscape studies linking escalating changes within the Anthropocene.

By documenting rewilding and extinction studies while witnessing waves of Indigenous and setter-allied land activism, she is exploring the role of art within activism and how the interpretation of climate action can affect its outcome.
