Nick Rivers (1983-) lives and works in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His work is a quest for meaning and experience through amalgamations of ritual, ceremony, sculpture, paintings and performance. He searches for the next paradigm; some place or thing beyond where we are now.
The Harpo Foundation Emerging Artist Residency at SFAI was my first residency after graduate school. It was a valuable opportunity in my development as a professional artist. The facilities and support from staff and other residents was enriching and engaging. I had the opportunity to network with many art professionals in Santa Fe during my residency and these directly benefited my artistic practice.
