James Nizam (b. 1977) is a Canadian artist currently based in Vancouver. His art practice investigates the workings of memory by exploring the relationship between photography and architecture and their capacity (alone an in conjunction) to comment on the vagaries of the mnemonic artefact. Nizam’s work has been exhibited extensively in Canada and abroad with upcoming solo exhibitions at Birch Libralato Toronto, Christophe Guye Zurich, and the Yukon Arts Centre. A recent recipient of a research and creation grant from the Canada Council for the Arts, Nizam’s work has also been recognized and reviewed in publications such as Canadian Art, Flash Art, Border Crossings, The British Journal of Photography, and Kalimat Magazine. In 2011, he was long listed for the Sobey Art Award, Canada’s preeminent award for Canadian Contemporary Art. In 2012, Nizam was commissioned by Louis Vuitton and recently, he was selected as a finalist for the Concord Pacific Public Art Competition.
