NICO WHEADON is a New York-based writer, curator and creative consultant. She holds an MA in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship from Goldsmith's College, University of London, and a BA in Art Semiotics and Literary Arts from Brown University. Her collaborators range from independent artists and creative start-ups, to prominent museums and publications, and her current projects have brought her into partnership with Nuit Blanche New YorkOpenbox and The Studio Museum in Harlem. Through developing innovative communications and exhibitions strategies that engage audiences and activate cultural partnerships, her practice expands the social influence of language and challenges creative production practices to seek higher levels of discourse. 

Between 2006 and 2010, Nico worked as Curatorial Assistant at The Studio Museum in Harlem, Curatorial Director at Rush Arts Gallery, and guest-curated exhibitions at P.P.O.W. Gallery, Scope International Art Fair, The Roger Smith Hotel, Verge Emerging Art Fair and The Catalina Hotel. Her writing has been published by prominent media outlets including, Studio Magazine, NuktaArt: Contemporary Art Magazine of Pakistan, ArtVoices Magazine and Distorted, and featured in exhibition literature at leading cultural institutions including, The Museum of Everything and Real Art Ways. She has guest-lectured at Pratt Institute, Howard University, Cooper Union and Brown University, and served on artist selection panels at Fashion Center BID and Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop.

In 2010, Nico moved to London to pursue her Master's and conduct fieldwork research in human-centered design and arts-led regeneration. Using the London 2012 Summer Olympics as a case study, she worked with local arts organizations, human geographers, and city government to research, develop, and evaluate creative, long-term solutions for underutilized space surrounding the Olympic site.

Nico continues to produce work as a photographer and has been commissioned by leading UK lifestyle brands and exhibited her work at Aljira, Little Wing Performance Space, The Division of Human Works, Hudson Guild, The Ivy Film Festival, David Winton Bell Gallery and The Rome International Film Festival.
