Christopher Myers is an artist and writer whose work across disciplines is rooted in storytelling and building narratives that speak to the slippages between history and mythology. His diverse practice spans textiles, performance, film, and sculptural objects, often created in collaboration with artisans from around the globe. In his ongoing series of textile works, Myers uses appliqué, a technique that appears often in quilting and banner making, and has developed as a tangible union of diverse cultural and visual practices. He works with materials that hold histories—of movement, migration, and exchange—within them.
