Nichol Marsch (she/her) is a visual artist from rural Manitoba. Working primarily in multimedia installation, her practice is self-reflective and explores concepts of social constructs, place, and determinants of identity. Marsch’s installations often combine traditional craft with contemporary art practices, an example of which was showcased in the Manitoba Craft Council’s exhibition Lens Reflex (2020).
As an art student, she produced a site-specific piece for LandMarks2017, a Canada 150 Partners in Art national juried group exhibition at The Forks National Historic Site in Winnipeg Manitoba. After obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honors from the University of Manitoba in 2018, she completed a year-long Preparatorial Practicum at the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity’s Walter Phillips Gallery. As a participant in the Mentoring Artists for Women’s Arts 2019-2020 Foundation Mentorship Program and with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, Marsch recently completed Subjects, a new large-scale installation, featured in a solo exhibition at La Maison des artistes Studio Gallerie in Winnipeg (Manitoba). Marsch co-curated and participated in the FMP exhibition We, Myself, and Us, and completed the 2020/2021 Creative Manitoba Individual Youth Mentorship Program.
