Christopher Stead is a London-based interdisciplinary artist, curator and documentarian of British counterculture. In 2016 Christopher graduated with a First Class BA Hons in Fine Art at the City and Guilds of London Art School, receiving the Painter-Stainers Scholarship Prize and Brian Till Art History Thesis Award.
He is the co-founder and director of the London-based curatorial collective Pigeon Park, created in response to the post-pandemic threat posed to artists’ working conditions in the wake of the Covid crisis. Through collaboration, Pigeon Park works with emerging and established artists to create immersive exhibitions in unique spaces, fostering artistic growth and engagement within the public sphere in times of restrictions, cutbacks and uncertainty.
His works have been shown widely both here in the UK and in Berlin, Barcelona, Amsterdam, and Helsinki, including solo presentations at Fold Gallery (London 2022), Lab Kalkhorst Residency (Baltic Sea 2020) & Urban Spree (Berlin 2020) and an upcoming solo show with Ruttkowski 68 in Cologne Autumn 2023.
