Christopher Kojzar

Christopher Kojzar received a B.A. in International Affairs from George Washington University and an M.F.A. in Intermedia and Digital Arts from the University of Maryland Baltimore County. A list of residencies include the Creative Alliance in Baltimore, Crosstown Arts in Memphis, and the Seventh Wave Residency in Rhinebeck, NY. Christopher creates art in response to interactions he has with other people when he enters active public spaces and openly engages in artistic practices such as drawing or recording with wearable technology. Prompted by interactions with security personnel, bystanders and the spaces themselves, his work explores observing and being observed in an era of escalating surveillance and mistrust—complicating it further by signaling his identity as an artist. His encounters have produced drawing, immersive video and sculptural installation about seeing and being seen, the oppositional gaze and the implied hierarchies of observation. He exhibits nationally and internationally and features an interdisciplinary practice on his website—
