Face Value KPF  14 - 20th December 2016
Nicola green was delighted to exhibit her Laughing Record in Face Value KPF , an exhibition confronting identity both new and old, and the value society places on both.
Each artwork featured in Face Value KPF was a metaphor for a person who's visual identity has been altered. Each piece was unique to the show and had been physically manipulated, by a third party, changing its visual identity to various extents.
The KPF aims to fundraise for burns survivers, to reconnect with their lives and their communities.

Nicola Green is pleased to exhibit in ICON: Worthy of our 21st century attention? curated by Candida Stevens.

'The exhibition features 23 British figurative artists, who cast their gaze over our social, cultural, religous and political icons, through their 21st century looking glasses. Some are icons themselves and others are arguably creators of future iconic imagery. They cut throught the bombardment of visuals, noise and information of our modern world and pick out the symbols, people and ideas that represent our thoughts, dominate our attention or are held up as worthy of our adulation.'

The Human Rights Watch Annual Auction  2015
     Fear, London Proof 1/1 2009| H109 x W101 cm | Five colour silkscreen print with water-based ink and aluminum ink on cotton paper - Somerset 410gsm|


In November 2015 Nicola Green donated Fear, London Proof 1/1 to The Human Rights Watch Annual Auction. The Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organisations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. By focusing international attention where human rights are violated, they give voice to the oppressed and hold oppressors accountable for their crimes.

Fear is a unique work from Nicola Green’s In Seven Days… series:

“The image was inspired by a press conference I attended in January 2009 shortly before Obama’s presidency began. It is seen from Obama’s viewpoint – looking out into a sea of cameras, a sea of people, each of them wanting something. This is not just about the media pack; it is about all of us and what we expect from and of each other. The camera looks at us all and we have to ask ourselves what story we want to tell over the course of the 21st century” Nicola Green .
