Claire Fontaine, “Working Together”

This collaborative duo, based in Paris, takes its name from a French paper company that specializes in school notebooks, which is only appropriate, since its work is often text-based and polemical (or seems so, anyway). Its art certainly appears critical of late capitalism in general and the art market in particular: This show, for instance—the group's debut with the gallery—features takeoffs on Richard Prince's "joke" paintings (actually transcripts of a conversation between the artist and designer Marc Jacobs on the occasion of the former's contribution to the Louis Vuitton collection) and other pieces, installed along with recycling bags filled with empty cans that have been hung from the ceiling.
