Nicole Seisler is a Los Angeles-based ceramic artist whose tripod practice comprises making, educating, and curating. Her sculpture, installations, and public art investigate time, materiality, process, psychology, and the overlapping roles of artist/viewer/participant/collaborator.
Nicole received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and her BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She has exhibited widely at museums ranging from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and the Museum of Fine Arts Tallahassee to the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and Craft Contemporary in Los Angeles, and she recently had a solo exhibition at the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, CA. Nicole has taught ceramics for over ten years at as many universities—from SAIC and the University of Washington, to Scripps College and UCLA—and in 2020 she published the book Recipes for Conceptual Clay (in the time of covid-19). As Founder and Director of the Los Angeles contemporary ceramics platform A-B Projects, she has curated over thirty exhibitions and offers alternative educational programming that reevaluates and redefines the trajectory of contemporary ceramics.
Across her practice Nicole creates dialogue and perspectives around ceramics that exist in the same conditions as the material: malleable, shifting, adaptable, and enduring; existing within, between, and beyond conventional definitions.
