Andrew Nicholls

Andrew Nicholls is an Australian/British artist, writer and curator who has curated for FORM since 2002, with occasional sabbaticals to further his own art practice. Primarily concerned with site-specific practice, his curatorial work frequently draws inspiration from heritage sites and museum collections. He has conceived, coordinated and participated in residencies at numerous iconic heritage locations across Western Australia, China, England, Italy, and the United States, including the Freud Museum London, and the Royal Pavilion, Brighton. Nicholls’ art practice explores how power has been played out through aesthetics historically. He is especially concerned with periods of cultural transition during which Western civilisation’s stoic aspirations were undone by base desires, fears or compulsions.
