Over the last decade, Claire Tancons has charted a distinct curatorial and scholarly path in performance, inflecting global art historical genealogies with African diasporic aesthetics. A graduate in Museum Studies from Ecole du Louvre and in Art History from the Courtauld Institute as well as a former Curatorial Fellow of the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, Tancons’ independent vision has been supported by an Andy Warhol Foundation Curatorial Fellowship, a Prince Claus Fund Artistic Production Grant and two Curatorial Research Fellowships from the Foundation for Art Initiatives. Tancons has curated for the New Orleans, Gwangju, Cape Town, and Goteborg biennials, as well as Tate Modern and Faena Art, and has recently been selected curator for the Sharjah Biennial 14 in 2019.
