About the Artist

Chris Evans’ work often evolves through conversation with people from diverse walks of life, selected in relation to their public life or symbolic role: the directors of a leading champagne house, a former member of the British Constructivists, the CEO of a Texas pharmaceutical company, a selection of elderly Italian politicians etcetera. 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, genius and muse.

Recent exhibitions include solo presentations at: Luettgenmeijer, Berlin (Goofy Audit (2011)); Marres, Maastricht (The Cell That Doesn’t Believe In The Mind That It’s Part Of (2010)); Mala Galerija, Ljubljana (I Don’t Know If I’ve Explained Myself (2010)); Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp (Take A Bureaucratic Bow (2009)); Galerie Juliette Jongma, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (Point at it, like a farmer at a pig, (2008), and Lüttgenmeijer, Berlin (What’s the point of a revolution without copulation, copulation, copulation, (2008) and Radical Loyalty at Studio Voltaire in 2007. 

Studio Voltaire has been supporting artists for over twenty years, through our renowned programme of exhibitions, performances, events and education projects as well as providing affordable studios.

We have gained a reputation for championing both emerging and underrepresented artistic practices, often at key stage in the artist’s career. These have included Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Phyllida Barlow, Ruth Ewan, Elizabeth Price, Jo Spence, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan, Richard Slee and Cathy Wilkes.

The gallery also provides an important UK platform for international artists, often providing them their first-ever presentation in the UK. These have included Nairy Baghramian, Thea Djordjadze, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Hopf, Paulina Olowska and Henrik Olesen.
