Yekaterina Nikonorova

Architecture, Video, Installation, Photography

With a background in architecture and urban planning, Nikonorova aims to transform urban spaces by enriching the cultural environment of the city. She works primarily in street art and video, but has also recently taken on the role of curator, spearheading an ambitious project to revitalize a major pedestrian route in Almaty through community participation and tactical design. She looked forward to exchanging ideas with contemporary arts professionals in all disciplines who work in the urban environment and was particularly interested in learning how DIY projects are organized and implemented in the US.
