Artist Talk: Chris Evans

14.9.2014, Talks

Chris Evans’ work often evolves through conversation with people from diverse walks of life, selected in relation to their public life or symbolic role.

Chris Evans’ (b. 1967, East Yorkshire, lives in London) creates sculptures, letters, drawings, film scripts and unwieldy social situations, which are indexes of a larger structure through which Evans deliberately confuses the roles of artist and patron, author and muse. Evans’ recent solo exhibitions include Clods, Diplomatic Letters, Juliette Jongma, Amsterdam, 2012; Goofy Audit, Lüttgenmeijer, Berlin, 2011; The Cell That Doesn’t Believe In The Mind That It’s Part Of, Marres, Maastricht, 2010. In 2012 a monograph on the artist was published by Sternberg in conjunction with his exhibitions at Marres and Objectif Exhibitions.

This talk was part of an afternoon of artist talks hosted by Mai Abu ElDahab and Anthony Huberman, co-curators of the 8th Liverpool Biennial Exhibition A Needle Walks into a Haystack, and took place at the Liverpool Medical Institution.
