DESCRIPTION

Claire Fontaine: Economies is the first comprehensive U.S. museum exhibition of the collective artist Claire Fontaine, formed in Paris in 2004.  Working in neon, video, sculpture, painting and text, Claire Fontaine uses an aesthetic language that questions authority by filling pre-existing art forms with political content.  Included are works ranging from 2006 to the present, with a selection of new pieces specifically produced for this exhibition.
