Artist Talk: Claire Pentecost, List Art Building, Wednesday, 19. February 2020

Claire Pentecost is an artist and writer who researches the living matters of the unified multi-dimensional being that has grown out of the surface of our planet. Her work is driven by research but inspired by questions of form. She advocates for the role of the amateur in the production and interpretation of knowledge, while a longstanding interest in nature and artificiality predicates her recent responses to anthropogenic climate change. Past projects focused on industrial agriculture in a global, corporate food system, as well as agroecological methods of growing. Pentecost has exhibited work nationally and internationally at dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel, Germany; 13th Istanbul Biennial; White Chapel, London; Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Turin, Italy, 3rd Mongolian Land Art Biennial; Higher Pictures, New York; Corcoran Museum, Washington, DC; Milwaukee Art Museum; Whitney Museum, Stamford, CT; Transmediale 05, Berlin; and American Fine Arts, New York. She is a professor in the department of photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and holds degrees from Smith College and the Pratt Institute.
