Posted on April 12, 2012 by School of Art

Kelly Nipper

Kelly Nipper received her MFA from California Institute of Art & Design in 1995. Nipper is an artist who “uses choreography to shape [her] ideas about space and time and weather and emotions.” She works with videos, installations, and live performances to explore the moving human form through deliberate, ritualized gestures. Nipper often integrates detailed notation systems and vocal directives with choreography and repetitive movements.

Nipper has shown in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. Recent solo exhibitions include: Tramway, Glasgow Scotland (2012); Francesca Kaufman, Milan, Italy (2010); Migros Museum für Lenenwartskunst, Zürich, Switzerland. Additionally, Nipper was included in the 2010 Whitney Biennial. Her awards include: the Center for Cultural Innovation (2010), Performa Commission (2007), and the Alberta Prize for Visual Art, San Diego (2007).
