Nic Tammens (Tasmania, 1989) is currently living and working within the United States as a foreign worker. His practice engages in diverse outputs, with a focus on writing and exhibition making. These activities have come to fruition as exhibitions in the United States and Australia, as writings and projects within the pages of Un. Magazine and The Lifted Brow, and as performances within Australian and American free-music communities. Tammens was a recipient of funding from the Australia Council for the Arts in 2012.
