Please join us for this exciting and informative talk with educator and imagemaker Nicole Jean Hill as she discusses her working methods as both artist and curator and discuss how these two roles inform each other.
With an anthropological approach to image making, Nicole Jean Hill is an artist using photography and video to explore familiar spaces and activities within the American cultural and natural landscape. She was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio and received a BFA in photography from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and an MFA in Studio Art from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her photographs have been exhibited throughout the U.S., Europe, Canada and Australia, including Gallery 44 in Toronto, the Australia Centre for Photography in Sydney, and the Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon. Her work has been featured in the Magenta Foundation publication Flash Forward: Emerging Photography from the U.S., U.K., and Canada, the Humble Art Foundation’s The Collector’s Guide to Emerging Photography, and National Public Radio. Hill has been an artist-in-residence at several arts organizations and universities including the Center for Land Use Interpretation in Wendover, Utah, the Ucross Foundation in Wyoming, and the Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, Oregon. She currently is a Professor of Art at California Polytechnic University- Humboldt and the co-curator of the Lora Webb Nichols photography archive.
Over the last decade, Hill has photographed a diverse range of subject matter centered in Humboldt County, California, including mixed martial arts fight culture, landscapes and detritus from public lands, and animals being captured and tracked by wildlife biologists. Alongside her own art practice, Hill has managed the Lora Webb Nichols archive since 2013. Her 2021 monograph on Nichols (Encampment, Wyoming: Selections from the Lora Webb Nichols Archive 1899-1948) was nominated for the 2021 Aperture-Paris Photo Book of the Year award.
