Talking Back and Together: Nicholas Ridiculous

The AGO and Workman Arts are partnering to empower artists to share their personal artwork and artistic practice. By creating a series of artistic videos which will premiere on the AGO’s Facebook page, they are taking up themes of mental health awareness and advocacy in art galleries and museums.

Workman Arts is a multidisciplinary arts organization promoting a greater understanding of mental health and addiction issues through creation and presentation. Workman Arts supports artists with lived experience through peer-to-peer arts education, public presentations and partnerships with the broader arts community.

Nicholas Ridiculous

Raised by Fiction | Nicholas Ridiculous

Welcome to my menagerie; a thrifted and twisted dreamscape of lost tapes. Join me on this retrospective of creative youth, an appreciation of process and showcase of how far you can follow your artistic desires. If you let yourself deserve it, if you allow yourself to feel the worth that everyone else knows is there. This is an ode to the beauty born of mad radicals and fad chasers, this is my reflections. A shattered world raised by fiction, now we are picking up the pieces. I was put into a dark box a long, long time ago by the foster care industry. I am finally starting to make my way out. And with me come the worlds I've made to survive the trials. 

Please enjoy this sampling of original craft, poetry, music, fashion and movement. Thanks for stopping by.
