Nicola Singh is an artist based in Newcastle. Her practice is rooted in performance and is made in response to contexts of feelings and chance, encounter and dialogue, location and place. She produces multifaceted projects, often involving live readings, experimental music, dialogue with other artists and the production of performative installations and objects.

Nicola also works as an arts educator in gallery and community settings, exploring ideas of performative, discursive and physical approaches to pedagogy and research. She holds a practice-based PhD in Fine Art, titled “On the ‘thesis by performance’: a feminist research method for the practice-based PhD”.

Recent projects include a new performance for LUX and LUX Scotland at Glasgow Film Theatre and a commission from BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art to create a new performance for their FAMILY DAY event. Forthcoming projects include 3-Phase – a three part commission to make new work for Jerwood Visual Arts, Workplace Gallery and Eastside Projects (2017 – 2018), and a solo show at Sidney Cooper Gallery in Canterbury (2018).
