Workshop and Artist Reception: Saturday April 4 CANCELED

Chris Francis is an artist and shoe designer who has built his practice upon stretching and bending the rules of art and fashion. Drawing from a range of different disciplines, from his punk roots to Dadaism and Bauhaus, his shoe designs reimagine the genre as sculptural, architectural, and brimming with creativity. Francis’s work encompasses motion machines, found objects, and international influences.
