About

Nicholas Fraser creates installations, videos and sculpture. _________________________________________________________________ His projects combine and recast texts, phrases and images from sources elevated and mundane. He explores our compulsion to communicate and the gap between what we intend to say and what's expressed. Often site specific and highly ephemeral, his work draws connections between histories and issues of the moment, making us aware of our position in a wider continuum. _____________________________________________________________ A 2016 solo exhibition at Hofstra University featured new work begun during an Art Omi residency. All Consuming, a public sited sculpture, was commissioned for Randall's Island in 2015, the same year he participated in the Bronx Museum's AIM program. His video Follow was featured in the Museum's 2015 AIM Biennial. A solo exhibition of his work was on view at York College/CUNY during February of 2015. He was awarded a 2014 NYFA Fellowship for his ongoing video project Fronts. ____________________________________________________ Other recent projects include Ground Rules, for the 2nd Ural Industrial Biennial and installations for the Art Prospect Festival in St. Petersburg. Recent exhibitions include JCAL's JFLUX Festival and No Longer Empty's Jameco Exchange, both in Jamaica, Queens. ____________________________________________________ Fraser has completed residencies at Skowhegan, Art Omi, Sculpture Space, LMCC’s SwingSpace and was a BRIC Media Fellow in 2012. _____________________________________________________ He's exhibited work at the Drawing Center, Interstate Projects, Flux Factory, Bronx Art Space, Art in Odd Places, La Mama La Galeria, Jack the Pelican and Taller Boricua. His work has been shown in Paris, Seoul, Toronto, Cuba and Germany. ________________________________________________________________ He earned his BFA at the Atlanta College of Art and his MFA at the School of Visual Art. Born in the U.K., he lives in Brooklyn.
