REVIEW: “The Swimmer” solo exhibition by Chris Sollars
By Kathryn McKinney for SFAQ November 2013

“The Swimmer,” Chris Sollars’s first solo show for Steven Wolf Fine Arts, features photos, videos and sculpture, all in homage to the San Francisco coastline, and its duality of water, Ocean and Bay, that shape the city. The sculptures in the show are all pulled from these shores; shopping carts, bikes, 40 oz bottles and cinderblocks meticulously cleaned to exhibit the saltwater’s own addition–colonies of barnacles living on our trash, like so many low rent tenants filling in the converted studios and improvised accommodations of coveted real estate, only to be yanked up and out, evicted by the fate of their discovery.

Behold the Mission's Sea-Sourced Fixed Gear Barnacle Bicycle
By Kevin Montgomery Uptown Almanac Nov 13 2013

But one local Mission artist is reviving the lost art of "custom builds" via a bike frame reclaimed from the Bay. Chris Sollars of 667Shotwell explains how this gruesome shipwreck in the making came to be:

Bicycle encrusted with SF Bay barnacles in Chris Sollars' "The Swimmer"
By John Angelico SFChronicle / SFGATE Nov 20 2013

Inspiration can come from many places, and in Sollars’ case it came from San Francisco Bay. As in literally from the bay: He dragged something from the water and used it in his work. The thing he dragged out was a bicycle frame, beautifully encrusted with barnacles. It was being kept in Davy Jones’ bicycle locker, apparently.

Steven Wolf Fine Arts: Chris Sollars - The Swimmer
By Anneliese Vobis for Art Business SF 2013

Sollars' sculptural practice overlaps with photography, video, collage and installation work. The Swimmer reflects on journeys and investigations along the Pacific coast. Story telling and altered sculptural objects constrast clean, geometrical driven video work. Both directions melt together and weave a narrative in Robert Smithson style.

Chris Sollars: An Appreciation of the In-Between
By Jasmine Moorehead for SFAQ May-July 2013

From the beginning, Sollars’ video art has been ambulatory. In his very first video piece from 1997, the artist records himself as he wheels a bucket full of soapy water around the city, picking up trash off the street, washing it, then carefully replacing the trash as he found it.

Chris Sollars on the Need for Humor in Art
By Jonathan Curiel for SF Weekly May 13, 2013

Shaving his beard with an axe. Washing trash in the street. Chris Sollars does the strangest things for the sake of art, but they work. Sollars has exhibited his video, photography and sculpture projects around the United States -- including at SFMOMA, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts & last month was awarded a prestigious grant from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

Humor & Perspective
By Simone Solondz for Our RISD May 9, 2013

For San Francisco-based performance artist Chris Sollars 98 SC, winning a 2013 Guggenheim fellowship means spending less time teaching and more time focusing on his own projects. Since his days in the RISD Sculpture department, his work has centered around street performance documented with video. “I started doing performances because I wanted a direct and immediate encounter with the public,” he says.

Feature: An Interview with Chris Sollars
By Max Karnig for JUXTAPOZ 5.15.2012

Karnig: What are your inspirations? Sollars: The street and the immediate space around me influences my ideas directly. My work takes inspiration from a range of art from Bruegel & Durer, to Duchamp to the Diggers & Yippies; Fischli/Weiss, Gordon Matta-Clark, Nauman, Chris Burden, David Hammons, Ana Mendieta, Paul McCarthy. Pipilotti Rist, Kim Jones, Acconci, Adrian Piper, Kaprow, Paul Kos, Bruce Conner and other 60 & 70s artists: that showed or made their work within the world / public spaces immediately within everyday life and often using their body as material. All my early videos in the street of performances are also influenced by Skate videos I grew up watching in the mid 80's to early 90's.

Hang Your Hat: an artwalk through home galleries
By Christy Chan for Bold Italic 1.9.2012

Chris Sollars is a Mission-based artist whose work was picked for both the SFMOMA SECA Award and YBCA’s Bay Area Now show. He started his gallery as a response to the disappearing art spaces in San Francisco during the dot-com boom. The first event was A Site Launch in 2001, parodying the extravagant tech parties of the 1990s.

Hairy: An Interview with Chris Sollars
By Danielle Sommer for Daily Serving 7.28.2011

For the last year, Bay Area artist Chris Sollars has sported a biblical behemoth of a beard, although his cleanly shaven cheeks are once again on view in Sollars’s newest project, Hairy, on view as part of YBCA’s Bay Area Now. It’s an interesting update on an identity-probing lineage that includes predecessors like Chris Burden, Gordon Matta Clark, James Luna, Ana Mendieta, and David Hammons. DailyServing recently had the opportunity to chat with Chris about the work.

TRASH: Play-Fill
By New Children's Museum

Through humorous interventions and performances, Chris Sollars calls attention to the things we throw away. Rather than telling the viewer what to think about trash, Sollars’s goal is to stimulate curiosity as a way of encouraging us to rethink the everyday world and consider the importance of the invisible and overlooked. In Play-Fill, Sollars creates a situation in which visitors are asked to think about the world from the perspective of a piece of trash. By refocusing our point of view, Sollars spotlights a critical topic we would rather ignore and makes it personal.

Art Practical - Issue 2.22 / Summer Reading

There were a number of artworks that I found interesting, such as Tammy Rae Carland’s staged photographs of stand-up comediennes in comic repose; Ben Venom’s outsize Medusa-head quilt fashioned from heavy metal paraphernalia; and Chris Sollars’ refreshingly bizarre and hirsute multimedia installation, to name a few.

Chris Sollars’ multi-channel performance/video installation, Hairy, is about hair—more specifically his hairiness and eventual hairlessness—and veers between offbeat humor and unsettling violence; it ends with an almost ritualistic, bloody beard purging in the woods with an axe blade.

There are a lot of great artists showing at YBCA's BAN6 showcase, but I found it really hard to pull myself away from Chris Sollars' Hairy exhibit. This Saturday Chris celebrates the art of "unruly facial hair" with a live event that features something that goes well with beards in this town — drinking whiskey! Between 5 and 7 p.m., you can get the growth on your mug sculpted, trimmed, and otherwise perfected while sipping brown booze cocktails crafted by Comstock Saloon.

Isn't It Obvious
by Mary Anne Kluth
March 20, 2011 2.14 Art Practical


Two segments in particular point to a critical aspect of Arthur/Allan’s reflexive process. Books by Allan on Arthur and Books by Arthur on Allan show the duo in a library, stacking books and fitting the namesake criteria on one another’s bodies. While the activity is schoolboy unruliness, as a metaphor, it enacts the reciprocal attention and validation that bolsters good ol’ boy networks and gray area ethics possible in any system of power.

Viewers may not be willing to jump until they no longer can, like Matthew Kennedy in Jumping, 2010; use their bodies as bookshelves, like the collaborative Arthur/Allan in one of their videos from City Hall, 2011; or edit video down to its best moments, like Lindsey White in Common Senses, 2009-11; but they could if they wanted to.

ri-FLEKT at WE Artspace
by Nastia Voynovskaya
The Daily Californian Oct 6, 2010


Chris Sollars new solo show at WE Artspace, titled “ri-FLEKT,” adventurously explores (and alters) the ways the small Oakland venue interacts with the surrounding urban landscape. The artist swapped the bus stop bench outside the venue with the couch that usually occupies the inside, augmenting each object to bring out the elements of each respective environment. A blanket with the portrait of Charlie, the WE Artspace dog, lays on the outdoor couch while Charlie herself can be found inside, a few feet away. Meanwhile, the bus stop bench occupies the bulk of the interior’s floor, a sheet of shiny plastic reflecting the walls while a recording of traffic sounds plays on a stack of speakers..

In light of cooperative creation’s many pitfalls, the success of “Arthur Allan,” is surprisingly refreshing. Developed collaboratively by Brion Nuda Rosch and Chris Sollars, the show not only combines their respective art practices and residential art spaces—Hallway Projects and 667 Shotwell—but also embraces the neighborhood and objects situated between their two homes.

Kyle and I opted for the Center for the Arts and we were in luck because when we got there, Chris Sollars (middle), one of the artists in residency was there and invited us up for coffee and a tour of his studio.

The studio was incredible; a giant pillared squat-like ballroom with raw paint cracking walls, and windows spilling in natural light on Sollars' sparse, neatly-placed installations.

Chris Sollars’ documentary C RED BLUE J explores the red state/blue state divide of 2004, as Chris juggles his beliefs with those of a sister working for the Bush administration, a born-again Christian father, and a lesbian mother. I Want You (Auditions) is Tony Labat’s new work, culled from footage of the original I WANT YOU performances. I asked them to interview each other for the blog & they typed their conversation together in real time in Tony’s studio Weds afternoon.

With Politics in the Air,
a Freedom Free-for-All Comes to Town

Review by Holland Cotter
September 23, 2008 New York Times Vol. CLVIII Pages B1 & B6


Chris Sollars’s film “C Red Blue J” documents major changes in his family’s history as he moved back and forth between a “normal” suburban childhood and a fraught adulthood that finds him with a born-again Christian father, a right-wing sister and a mother who lives with a female lover. The film opens with Mr. Sollars in bed, as if he would rather sleep through the familial confusion that follows, which he sets against the background of the 2004 election campaign and the Iraq war.
