Christopher Clary is an artist and curator.

His practice explores sex in tech culture—playfully drawing on personal archives and queer histories—using performance, video, installation, objects, books, and even software, sometimes all in one series as a way to see an idea differently.

He has been part of numerous exhibitions, festivals, and conferences around the world from the Palais de Tokyo to China Art Book Fair. His Rhizome commission was honored by Hyperallergic and acquired by the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. His art was nominated for the Discovery Award at the international photography fair Les Rencontres d’Arles in France. His books including a trilogy for Troll Thread are in the public collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Walker Art Center, International Center of Photography, SUNY Buffalo, School of Visual Arts, Wendy’s Subway, 本 hon books, and Printed Matter.

Curatorially, he co-produced with GenderFail press and Larker magazine a year of programming for the ICP Museum and Library that included the work of Allison Parrish, American Artist, Morehshin Allahyari, Nora Khan, and Porpentine Charity Heartscape. Other curatorial projects include an online exhibition about safe space for The Wrong digital art biennale.
