Tara Nicholson incorporates photography and video to investigate remote and often disputed territories. The notion of modern-day pilgrimage has been repeated throughout her large-scale projects for the past five years to invite reflection on the desire to retreat and escape.

Nicholson has exhibited and attended residencies internationally and since 2010 has taught at the University of Victoria. In 2013 Nicholson was invited to be the artist in residence at the Künstlerhaus Dortmund in Germany where she completed a summer residency and solo exhibition. Nicholson has received support from the BC Arts Council and Canada Council and is currently producing work in the Arctic centered around our layered and quickly changing view of northern landscape.

She recently exhibited her work at Modern Fuel Artist-run Centre in Kingston, Ontario and has an upcoming show at the Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George (Jan 2017), and solo shows at the Burnaby Art Gallery, BC, (June 2017) and the Vernon Art Gallery, BC, (Oct 2017).
