Alex Nichols is a conceptual artist and writer based in San Francisco.  She asks questions, challenges social constructs and deconstructs the idea of self.  Meaning is in every object, every movement, every interaction. Through observation of these details Alex creates new worlds and upturns what life seems to be into what it can be.

Along with her individual practice Alex has an ongoing collaboration ALEXANDMUSHI: Alex Nichols and Mushi Wooseong James that began in 2015.  Also in 2015 she founded Think Make Tank, an art tank, art lab, artist collective,
building concepts and experiences around perception.

She received her MFA from CCA in Writing and her BA in Performance & Culture. She has participated in residencies, partnering and exhibiting her work throughout the Bay Area and internationally including Headlands Center for the Arts, Recology Artist in Residence Program, Southern Exposure, Berkeley Art Center, Bamboo Curtain Studios Taipei, MOCA Taipei, AAA (American Anthropological Association), Fort Mason Center for Art & Culture and MODERNISM Gallery. Alex has lectured at CCA, UC Berkeley and AIA. With publications in media outlets including: SF Chronicle, SF Weekly, Taipei TV, 7X7, Timeout, Dazed.
