Closing April 17: Niki Singleton, PRESENT ARCHAEOLOGY

Closing April 17, 6-9pm
With performances by Thea Little, Anya Liftig and more…

A painter, sculptor, and installation artist, Niki Singleton draws on both popular culture and mythology in order to create works that simultaneously reference human history and comment on contemporary culture. Singleton’s work is variable, ranging from colored abstract compositions to surreal gestural works created in an expressionist style. Her subject matter reflects this flexibility as well: her works are just as likely to feature friends performing in local spaces as they are to depict grand compositions riddled with social commentary.

Born in Vancouver, Canada, to African and European parents, Niki is now based in Brooklyn after traveling and living abroad for 10 years. She has undertaken residencies in France, the Netherlands, New York and has had solo exhibitions at the Holocaust Museum in Dallas, TX and Imagine Ic in Amsterdam. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at Life on Mars Gallery, Friday Gallery, Brooklyn Fireproof Gallery, Studio 10 and Triangle Workshop in Brooklyn as well as 287 Spring Gallery, Nurture Art Benefit and White Box Gallery in Manhattan. She holds an MFA from the New York Studio School. Niki is currently working on a monthly political comic strip for The Mantle, an online political journal.
