Chris Sollars is an artist living and working in San Francisco. Since 1997 his work revolves around the reclamation and subversion of public space through urban interventions, the results of which are integrated into video installations. Sollars holds a BFA in sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design and a MFA from Bard College. He is also director and curator of 667Shotwell a non-commercial space in his home for artists to do experimental work, started in 2001 during the wake of disappearing art-spaces. Sollars’ work is in the collections of the Berkeley Art Museum, Fogg Art Museum, and Miami Art Museums. Awards include 2002 Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation Award, 2007 Alternative Exposure Grant, 2007 Eureka Fellowship Award, and a 2007 San Francisco Bay Area Artadia Grant. Articles and reviews included in NY Times; Art Net; Time Out New York; Contemporary Magazine; NY Arts Magazine; and Flash Art. Sollars has most recently completed C RED BLUE J an experimental documentary feature that uses his family including his sister Jennifer who works for the Bush Administration, Fred his Born Again father, and Karen his Lesbian mother to illustrate the complications of division during the 2004 Presidential election.
