Virtual Good Talks is a monthly series of artist talks where emerging artists with connections to London discuss their careers.

Nico Williams, is an Anishinaabe multidisciplinary artist from Aamjiwnaang First Nation. His studio practice is based in Tiohtiá:ke| Mooniyang| Montréal. Nico uses beadwork to create experimental forms and create a dialogue with his own experiences of being NDN. Nico recently exhibited work at The Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal as apart of a group exhibition. He also facilitated and presented a community-based project at the PHI Foundation.

He works with Japanese glass Delicas and creates experimental forms using geometric beadwork. He is an active member in the urban Indigenous Montreal Arts community and is a board member for the Biennale d'Art Contemporain Autochtone (Contemporary Native Art Biennial). In 2018, Williams was included in a feature article and film spot in National Geographic. In 2019, he became a core member in the Contemporary Geometric Beadwork Project research team when he was invited to participate in a creation session entitled “Art, Architecture, and Models of Hyperbolic Energy” at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston. His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across Canada and internationally, including his recent exhibition Beading Now at La Guilde, in which he presented works from 2014-2018.

Nico's talk will be hosted live on Zoom on April 27 at 6:30pm.
