Jim Ricks Projects is the curatorial practice of artist Jim Ricks.
The type of artistic activity undertaken can be seen as both an expansion of the combined activities of artistic practice, curation, exhibition making, and commercial presentations – but also an erosion of them.
Often, artistic space is ‘carved out’ in unexpected locations and nontraditional venues are used.
