ALEX NICHOLS is a multi-disciplinary artist and writer involved in Critical
Contact Art. Art that explores identity, connection and communication through
the bodies experience. The question at the core of Alex's work is how the
body can become the place of active resistance. She is exploring identity
through our bodies, specifically self in context to other. The goal is to connect
and communicate through a primal language that bridges the borders of
language, culture and gender.

A native of San Francisco, Alex received her MFA from CCA in 2011. She has
participated in residencies and exhibited her work throughout the Bay Area
including the Headlands Center for the Arts, Recology Artist in Residence
Program, Southern Exposure, Berkeley Art Center, NUMU Museum, Fort
Mason Center for Art & Culture and Modernism West. In 2016 she gave a
lecture at AIA (American Institute of Architects).

Alex is Executive Director of TMT which is an artist collective she founded
with Mushi and Qinmin Liu in 2016 in San Francisco. TMT is a collaborative
space that develops projects and events that bring interdisciplinary artists and
the public together to create experiences around ideas. “We built TMT on the
belief that an idea must be experienced to become ones own.”

Alex and Mushi began collaborating in 2015. Their primary project is The
Portable Studio. The Portable Studio is a participatory and public project that
involves multiple cultures. “Our goal is to look at the core of how people
communicate and connect,” says Nichols. “We are trying to push beyond
gender, cultural conditioning and language conditioning, and build a
conversation.”
