This exhibition explores the work of Paris-based artist Claire Fontaine. Fontaine took her name from a popular brand of school notebooks and declared her self a “readymade artist” in 2004. The exhibition will incorporate older works, including sculptures, light pieces, videos, text works as well as new interventions by Fontaine in addition to a screening area showing films and videos that have influenced Fontaine’s work. Managed by her “assistants,” Fontaine’s practice is deeply imbedded in collaborative modes of working and questioning possibilities for social change. Fontaine explores the politics, theorists, and artists of the 1960s in Europe and the United States, playing with that legacy. The exhibition is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami and curated by MOCA Associate Curator Ruba Katrib.
