— Nikki Lam is a visual artist, curator and producer based in Narrm/Birraranga (Melbourne, Australia)
Working primarily with moving image, performance and installation, Nikki’s work explores hybrid identities often through studies of rituals, language and representations, as well as the ephemeral medium of video.
Born in Hong Kong (1988), Nikki's work has been shown widely across Australia and internationally including Pier 2 Art Center (Taiwan), Itoshima International Arts Festival (Japan), Underbelly Arts Festival, SafARI, Firstdraft, BUS Projects, Australian Centre for Moving Image, The Substation, Footscray Community Arts Centre, Nite Art, The Ferry Gallery (Bangkok), Galleria Marcollini (Italy), and Over View International Festival of Video Art.
She is the former Artistic Director (2014-2017) of Channels, The Australian Video Art Festival, and visual arts editor (2014-2016) at Peril Magazine. She has worked in multiple arts organisations including Footscray Community Arts Centre, Foundation for Arts and Creative Technology (FACT). Until recently she has been working at Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) where she was the community lead and program producer at ACMI X co-working space, a hub to bridge between moving image, contemporary art, technology and creative industries.
Nikki has a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Photomedia (2009, Monash University) and Executive Master of Arts (2014, University of Melbourne).

*Working in Birraranga / Narrm: I would like to acknowledge that I live and work on the unceded lands of the Kulin Nation. I would like to offer my respect to the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung peoples, their elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded on this land and colonialism is ongoing. 原本是，永遠都是原住民的土地。
