    About the artist

    Lives and works in Amsterdam, Cologne, and Los Angeles.
    1956: Was born in Los Angeles

    In the 1970s, Christopher Williams studied at the California Institute of the Arts under the first wave of West Coast conceptual artists, including John Baldessari and Douglas Huebler, only to become one of his generation’s leading conceptualists. 

    Deeply political, historical, and sometimes personal, the photographs are meant to evoke a subtle shift in our perception by questioning the communication mechanisms and aesthetic conventions that influence our understanding of reality.

    Williams lives and works in Amsterdam, Cologne, and Los Angeles.
