About the Event

Christopher Samuel is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice is rooted in identity and disability politics, often echoing the many facets of his own lived experience. Seeking to interrogate his personal understanding of identity as a disabled person impacted by inequality and marginalisation, Christopher responds with urgency, humour, and poetic subversiveness within his work.

Christopher works in lots of different mediums - from illustrations, to installation, to print, to video – all ways where he can take agency over the disabled or marginalised experience. He utilises redaction a lot in his work - the idea of revealing and concealing things by removing or blocking out certain information, to suggest a different narrative. Christopher makes work which opens a dialogue about a lived experience which many people may not directly identify with, and that highlights a wider spectrum of the human experience.

Please join Christopher over on zoom on Tuesday 24 January at 10am, to hear about his art journey from a BTEC in Art & Design, to a degree in Fine Art at DeMontford University in Leicester, to recently being commissioned to work with the Wellcome Collection’s archives in London to produce The Archive of the Unseen – his largest and most in-depth work to-date. His journey also includes a solo show at Attenborough Arts Centre in Leicester, titled Housing Crisis, focusing on the difficulties he has faced as a physically disabled individual navigating the backwards housing system. After Christopher presents his journey through slides and a Q&A, there will be plenty of time to ask him about his artwork, and how he has navigated society, and the art world, as a disabled black man.
