Deeply invested in the histories of photography and film, Christopher Williams, * 1956, has produced a concise oeuvre that furthers a critique of late capitalist society in which images typically function as agents of spectacle. His most recent major solo exhibitions were featured at Art Institute of Chicago (2014), MoMA New York (2014), Whitechapel Gallery London (2015), Triennale, Milan (2017) and Kestnergesellschaft Hanover (2018). His work is part of major international collections such as MoMA, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; Tate, London; Museum Ludwig, Cologne and MuMok, Vienna. Christopher Williams lives and works in Chicago, Cologne and Los Angeles. Since 2008 he is professor at the Kunstakademie Duesseldorf. He is represented by Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne and David Zwirner, New York/London/Hong Kong.
