Chris Evans talks about his work as part of the Falmouth School of Art Guest Speakers series.
Chris Evans' work often evolves through conversation with people from diverse walks of life, selected in relation to their public life or symbolic role Sculptures, letters, drawings, film scripts and unwieldy social situations created as a result of this, are indexes of a larger structure through which Evans deliberately confuses the roles of artist and patron, author and muse.
Chris Evans has exhibited internationally since 2000 with solo exhibitions at institutions that include C.A.N. Centre d'Art Neuchatel (2018); Praxis, Berlin (2015); Project Arts, Dublin (2014); Marres, Maastricht (2010); Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp (2010); the British School in Rome (2008) and Art Pace, San Antonio (2007). Evans participated in the 6th British Art Show in 2005 and the following year in East International and since then has exhibited in several art Biennials: Athens Biennial in 2007, Taipei Biennial in 2010 and Liverpool Biennial in 2014. In 2016 he was the recipient of a Bryan Robertson Trust Award.
