Christopher D. Ansell is an independent curator, exhibitions producer at the National Memorial Arboretum and visiting tutor at Birmingham School of Art. 


He is interested in how narrative is produced and read within exhibitions, literature and theatre, with particularly focus on the position of figurative depictions within these narratives. 


In his work at the National Memorial Arboretum, this interest manifests itself in exhibitions that explore how conflict, memorialisation and remembrance inform our experience of being human and the human condition.
