Christopher Sícat was a long time Los Angeles artist and curator before relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area. He graduated from Otis/Parsons School of Design (B.F.A.) and the New York Academy of Arts (M.F.A. cum laude). His recent sculptures investigate the natural environment as a platform for process- and performance- based art making. Sicat has exhibited his works at the de Saisset Museum in Santa Clara, CA; Space 47 and Art Arc in San Jose, CA; Palo Alto (CA) Art Center; and Swarm Gallery, Southern Exposure, and Intersection for the Arts in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA. In the past he has also shown at JAUS, Track 16 Gallery, and Black Dragon Society in Los Angeles, CA; Intramuros Museum in Manila, Philippines; and Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, CA. Sicat directed the infamous Hatch Gallery, which hosted the controversial “Rejection Show” that was highlighted on the BBC The World.
