Nikki Kane


Nikki Kane is an artist and curator whose practice examines experiences of space, place, societal structures, and the everyday. Her work often involves performance or action in public settings, as well as writing, sculptural or print-based mediums. Much of her work centres on a ‘choreographic’ perspective, using this as a way to highlight, disrupt or amplify the rhythms, patterns and shapes of our environments.

Nikki studied History of Art at the University of Glasgow and later completed the Masters of Research inCreative Practices at Glasgow School of Art in 2015. She has presented projects and undertaken residencies in the UK and internationally, and most recently has been working as part of CuratorLab atKonstfack, Stockholm. She is the Curator in Residence at House for an Art Lover 2017, and was part of the committee at Market Gallery in 2014-16. She is also co-founder and director of Common Ground, a platform through which she has facilitated artist residencies in the Scottish Highlands and her Glasgow studio, and curated exhibitions and events.

Alongside her independent practice she has also worked within public art organisations to develop and deliver large-scale participative projects, notably at NVA where she was part of the team presenting Speed of Light, Ghost Peloton, and Hinterland.
