Christopher E. Manning was born in New York in 1983. 

He has a MFA from SUNY New Paltz and a BFA from Manhattanville College. He is the Exhibitions Project Manager at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, as well as a Professor of Visual Art at Manhattanville College. Christopher has also taught at the College of New Rochelle, and has been a visiting critic at the Wassaic Project and SUNY New Paltz MFA and BFA programs.

His work, which has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, presents a teetering of truths and lies, light versus dark and all passages between life, death and rebirth. The cumulative narrative comes to represent a portrait of what shapes us, while embodying the deluge of all that was forgotten or surplus to existence.

He has been featured in the New York Times, Queens Chronicle, Two Coats of Paint, Ain’t Bad, The Impossible Project Magazine and many other publications.

Manning lives and works in North Salem, NY.
