Artist and Writer

Christopher Bay's work incorporates video, sculpture and performance, and his recent installation “KWTXR”, (based on the fictional character Kara Walker, Texas Ranger) is a response to historical violence against African Americans by law enforcement officers. Other recent projects include “The Seven Deadly Things” at 500X Gallery, “Satellites”, at Centraltrak, the UT Dallas Artist residency, and two ongoing public art projects in Dallas and Fort Worth. In 2013, Blay received the SMU Meadows museum’s Moss/Chumley award, given to artists whose works intersect with both the arts and their community. Among his other recent installations, Machine Time explores ideas about time travel and photography, and “The Ark on Noah Street” creates a space outside of galleries, seeking to engage neighborhoods directly.
