Nicola López

Nicola Lopez invokes cartography, architecture, technology, history, and topography to explore the signs and signifiers of the urban landscape. Lopez’s prints, drawings, and installations combine techniques from printmaking and urban infrastructural design, using a unique visual language to create spatial experiences reminiscent of those of the pedestrian in the modern everyday world. While her work is strictly structured and often suggests details of engineering plans, Lopez allows for a certain amount of process-based unpredictability in her work, centering on a balance of order and disorder. Her work has the structural appeal of crisp architectural blueprints but is permeated by the aesthetic allure of a rusted ruin. 

Lopez has been the recipient of grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Joan Mitchell Foundation, among others. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Mexico City’s Museo Rufino Tamayo, and the Denver Art Museum. She has had solo exhibitions at the Chazen Museum of Art in Madison, Wisconsin and at New York’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York and teaches at Columbia University.
