I’m an artist, based in Manchester, UK. My practice spans a range of media and approaches, including; socially engaged projects, video essays, textile banners, and publications. In 2012 I founded English Disco Lovers (EDL), an anti-fascist, pro-disco group. Other projects include; Adam Speaks (With New Mouths) (2017), a neoclassical treehouse commissioned by the National Trust; and What Mortals Henceforth Shall Our Power Adore (2020), a video essay that frames the trident as a symbol of colonial intent. Each project addresses an array of interconnected social, political, economic and environmental concerns. I’m also an active member of the Quaker community and a skateboarder. www.chrisalton.com Manchester
