Christopher Suarez

Christopher Suarez, born in Long Beach, California, received his BFA in Ceramic Arts from California State University, Long Beach, where he studied with Tony Marsh and Christopher Miles. Suarez has served as the Lead ArtsBridge Teacher at the California State University, Long Beach and as an Education Intern at The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. Suarez was awarded a Summer 2021 residency at Township 10 in western North Carolina. His ceramic tableaus recreate neighborhood buildings—laundromats, convenience stores, taquerias—from his hometown of Long Beach, and explore the relationship between personal histories and urban environments. Suarez lives in Long Beach, California and is in residence at AMOCA September–December 2022.

AMOCA’s Residency Program

AMOCA’s Artist in Residence Program, established in 2012, is one of the few long-term fellowship opportunities for ceramic artists on the West Coast. This residency provides artists an opportunity to produce or develop a new body of work. The program is funded through generous support from Julianne and David Armstrong, Laguna Clay, and the Windgate Foundation.
