CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts
Kris Martin is the spring Capp Street Project artist in residence, and one of the seven artists participating in the Wattis Institute’s three-year program The Magnificent Seven. Martin’s conceptual practice centers on the fragility of the human condition. His frequent use of the readymade—from boulders to texts by Dostoyevsky to common nails—alludes to the poignancy inherent in everything that surrounds us.
