Description

Taking its name from a French publisher of school stationery, Claire Fontaine is an artistic partnership between James Thornhill and Fulvia Carnevale, formed in 2004. Their work responds to global events, politics and society through the use and misuse of powerful symbols and status objects. Fontaine has been included in notable group exhibitions such as the 4th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art (2011), the 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011), Manifesta 7 (2008), and the 2004 Whitney Biennial.

Claire Fontaine also has work in Marx@200, co-organized by Professor Susanne Slavick and Kathy M. Newman. The exhibition is on view at SPACE in Pittsburgh April 6 – June 10.
