Edited by Chris Evans, Will Holder, Lisette Smits
With texts by Penelope Curtis, Marina Vishmidt, Tirdad Zolghadr

The work of artist Chris Evans evolves through conversations with people from various walks of life, selected in relation to their public position or symbolic role—resulting in sculptures, letters, drawings, film scripts, and unwieldy social situations. These become indexes of a larger structure through which Evans deliberately confuses the roles of artist, collector, philanthropist, commissioner, art dealer, and public funding body. To all intents and purposes, this publication is a comprehensive survey of his work, isolating and documenting the formalities of objects and situations. It includes commissioned essays and other writings, as well as a form of notation for each individual work produced since 1996. The publication accompanies a traveling exhibition co-organized by Marres, Centre for Contemporary Culture, Maastricht; Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp; and Kunsthalle Bern.
