Kelly Nipper works in photography, installation and film, often combining all three mediums. Although not a choreographer, Nipper draws her subjects from the dancing body and the live event. For her, the dancer becomes an aesthetic object—an androgynous, anonymous subject for her work. Based in Los Angeles, Nipper earned her M.F.A. from California Institute of the Arts in 1995, where she worked with Allan Kaprow. Her work has been shown both nationally and internationally including at The Orange County Museum of Art (Newport Beach, CA); Performa07 (New York, NY); Art Statements (Basel, Germany); The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA); Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY); Centre Pompidou (Paris, France) and Kunsthaus Zürich (Zurich, Switzerland). Nipper received the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award in 2007 and a grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation in 2010.
