Course Description 
Since 2004, Claire Fontaine has worked to redefine the exhibition space as a context for a discrete, reparative examination of the currents of contemporary life. Their work speaks both to the moment and to histories, written and erased. In Claire Fontaine Works, the interdisciplinary artist will take participants into their collaborative working process and explore the major exhibitions that they have produced over two decades. Claire Fontaine is known for works that are encompassing, intellectually sophisticated, politically charged, and stylistically diverse. With a robust range of discursive engagements, particularly with feminist theory, Claire Fontaine will explore the questions that have driven their artistic practice as it has evolved.

Claire Fontaine

Claire Fontaine is a collective conceptual feminist artist founded by James Thornhill and Fulvia Carnevale in 2004 in Paris, which relocated to Palermo in 2017. Her name is inspired by Duchamp’s iconic ready-made, the urinal titled Fontaine, and a famous brand of French notebooks (Clairefontaine); it defines a space where the biographies of the artists aren’t directly connected to their artworks allowing their research to become a space of freedom and desubjectivization. Claire Fontaine uses video, sculpture, painting and writing and most recently has published a comprehensive anthology of her writings with Semiotext(e) in 2020 titled Human Strike and the Art of Creating Freedom, among many others.
They have had many solo exhibitions over the years and the most recent solo shows include Siamo con voi nella notte, Museo del 900, Firenze, 2020; I- WE-YES, Studio Concreto, Lecce, 2020; Your Money and Your Life, Galerias Municipais, Lisbona, 2019; La Borsa e la vita, Palazzo Ducale, Genova, 2019; Les printemps seront silencieux, Le Confort Moderne, Poitiers, 2019, and #displaced Städtische Galerie Norhdorn, Nordhorn, 2019.
