In conjunction with the ongoing project Mobilizing Citizenship, Kunsthall Stavanger presents a lecture with one of the participants - Nicole Killian.
Nicole Killian's work investigates how the structures of the internet, mobile messaging, and shared online platforms affect contemporary interaction and shape cultural identity from a queer perspective. She is interested in the repetition, looping, and sharing of content.
Nicole has exhibited at Sediment in Richmond, CAVE in Detroit, Arcadia Missa in London, Present Works in Milwaukee, Little Berlin in Philadelphia, Embassy in Los Angeles, Sadie Halie Projects in Brooklyn, Nomade Gallery in Hangzhou and Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art for Lorna Mills' Ways of Something. Her writing has been published in Terry Barrett's Criticizing Art, online quarterly WOW HUH, The Enemy, and The Journal for Feminist Scholarship. This year the essay "The Emotional Potential of Girls Presented on the Internet as Object" will be published by Exempt Works in the book Modern Behaviours and her publishing initiative, Nico Fontana will launch. Nicole is an Assistant Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University. She is co-editor and co-designer of ISSUES with Sarah Faith Gottesdiener.
