Claire Daigle is a writer, art historian, and critic whose work has appeared in New Art Examiner, X-tra, Art Papers, Sculpture, Brooklyn Rail, and Tate, etc. She was a Fellow in Critical Studies at the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program and holds a PhD in art history from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Her dissertation, Reading Barthes/Writing Twombly, was received with distinction. Her interests form a constellation around word and image relationships (between theory and practice, and experience and verbal articulation—particularly as related to color; documentation; archival and everyday practices; contemporary literature and art; and among marks, script, and signs). She has taught at the School of Visual Arts and Hunter College in New York, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Daigle is Assistant Professor of History and Theory of Contemporary Art, Director of MA Programs, and Co-director of the Low-Residency Graduate Program at SFAI.
