2013’s Micro Residency programme began with Chris Walker.
The Micro Residency programme provides funding, mentoring, studio space and access to the workshops over a short 6 week period, enabling artists to develop or test ideas and to make work.
Since completing his MFA at ECA in 2004 Chris Walker has exhibited regularly, nationally and internationally.
Recent work includes:
– Project !Wakaka! At Outskirts festival, Platform, Glasgow (2012) and Polygon, Kunstarkaden, Munich (2011).
Chris’ work is informed by contemporary news reporting and censorship; the every-day nature of the presentation of violence in the media; consumerism and materialistic imperatives and contemporary philosophical ideas relating to ethics.
