For his debut presentation in Tokyo, Japan, Christopher showed a mixed media collection of textile, sculpture, and film works. Curated by Sophie Mayuko Arni, the exhibition aimed to create cross-cultural dialogues between the UAE and Japan, traveling in revised configurations across 3 locations, including BLOCKHOUSE, HB.Nezu, and ILY Art Hub.
