• Bio


    Nika Kaiser is a visual artist working with photography, video, and installation. Her art practice deploys a meeting of the imaginary and the real to explore ideas of deep time, interspecies connection, anti-capitalism, and future ecologies, and is informed by her upbringing in the Sonoran borderlands. Kaiser holds an MFA in Visual Art from the University of Oregon. Her work has been exhibited internationally and she has been the recipient of numerous awards, including two Arts Foundation New Works Grants, a Warhol Foundation Grant, and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship. She performs as one half of the experimental sound and video project Alluvium, who create site-specific pieces archiving the natural world’s fluctuating conditions. She is a member of the international video collective Ungrund and an alumni of Ditch Projects in Springfield, Oregon. Kaiser teaches Experimental Practices in the Department of Film and Television at the University of Arizona.
