Lectures & Talks, Exhibition Tours & Events


with Tucker Nichols

Thursday, March 19, 2020 - 5:30 PM

This is event has been cancelled—we apologize for the inconvenience.

SVMoA’s top priority is the health and well-being of this community, especially those who are the most vulnerable. It is important to act collectively to slow the spread of COVID-19 so, in response, we have opted to cancel public gatherings (concerts, openings, classes) organized through Sun Valley Museum of Art and Company of Fools May 1, 2020.

Join us for participating artist Tucker Nichols’s talk about the role of play, experimentation and interactivity in his practice. Many of Nichols’s projects give museum visitors the opportunity to participate in them in some way, from rearranging objects to create sculptural installations to making images using colorful shapes on an overhead projector. Based in Northern California, Nichols’s work has been featured at the Drawing Center in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Denver Art Museum, Den Frie Museum in Copenhagen, and the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. A show of his sculpture, Almost Everything On The Table, was recently on view at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum.

His drawings have been published in McSweeney’s, The Thing Quarterly, The New Yorker and the Op-Ed pages of The New York Times. He is co-author of the books, Crabtree (with Jon Nichols) and This Bridge Will Not Be Gray (with Dave Eggers).
