Claire Pentecost,

Claire Pentecost’s work engages diverse strategies—collaboration, research, teaching, field work, writing, lecturing, drawing, installation and photography—in an ongoing interrogation of the institutional structures that order knowledge. Her work has long addressed the contested boundary between natural and artificial, focusing the last fifteen years on food, agriculture and bio-engineering. Recently Pentecost has exhibited at dOCUMENTA(13), Whitechapel Gallery, and the 13th Istanbul Biennial. Represented by Higher Pictures in New York, she is a Professor in the Department of Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and often collaborates with Compass in the Midwest Radical Cultural Corridor.
