About the Artist
Christopher is an artist and curator based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His background in art history, critical theory, and literature has made a significant impact on his photography, especially in how he scrutinizes the impact of technology on culture and natural environments. His photographs are subtle yet earnestly observed moments that create affective associations with domestic interiors, natural features, and artificial surfaces. Additionally, Christopher is interested in how photography captures darkness, transparency, and time. Currently he is Curator of Exhibitions and Public Programs at the Minnesota Museum of American Art.
Christopher holds M.Res and MA degrees in Visual Cultures from Goldsmiths College, University of London and a BA in Art History from the College of Wooster. His photographs have been exhibited nationally in solo, juried, and group exhibitions, at venues including the Plains Art Museum and the Chautauqua Institution. He is the recipient of a Jerome Foundation Artist Travel and Study Grant (2013) and has received a Minneapolis Institute of Art Roberta Mann Innovation Award (2013).
