Christopher Williams / Kunsthalle Zrich

August 30, 2007

The current exhibition at Kunsthalle Zurich is dedicated to the conceptual artist Christopher Williams. Christopher Williams (born 1956) lives and works in Los Angeles. In the 1970s he studied at the California Institute of Arts under the first generation of conceptual artists on the west coast – among others under John Baldessari and Douglas Huebler. “Williams’ photographs, videos, installations, sculptures and performances study the conditions of presentation and representation and call into question spoon-fed perception and true-to-reality reproductions: how do our communication mechanisms and aesthetic conventions influence our perception and understanding of reality?” (Excerpt from the press release). Christopher Williams, Kunsthalle Zrich. Opening, August 24, 2007.
