Christa Donner launched her first solo exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art in 1999 as the first recipient of the Wendy L. Moore Emerging Artist Award. She has since been actively exhibiting, publishing, teaching and curating, using large-scale drawings and small-press publications to explore issues around the human body and other biological forms. Her process often incorporates public projects and collaborations around personal narratives of bodily experience. Christa's work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Colombia, Cyprus, Sweden, Finland, and throughout the United States.
Now based in Chicago, Christa teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and harbors a healthy obsession for independent comics and other small-press publications. In 2013 she founded Cultural ReProducers, an online resource and community-based project for and about active cultural workers raising kids. She continues to experiment with the sculptural and narrative properties of ink and paper, and doesn't plan to stop anytime soon.
