Chris Francis

Los Angeles-based shoemaker and designer Chris Francis combines global shoemaking traditions with references to high fashion, 20th century art movements, and punk rock. His hand-constructed, one-of-a-kind shoes are equal parts contemporary art object, wearable shoe, and narrative device. Francis will relocate his shop to the museum during the course of the exhibition, working and demonstrating the methods he utilizes to design and craft his shoes.
