Clare writes about participatory arts practices in independent arts organizations, museums, and archives. Right now she is focused on Elsewhere for the third chapter of her dissertation on artist project spaces between 2001 and 2016. She began her American life as a participant in an artist’s pedagogical project – the Sponge HQ –  where there was a beehive, a fish tank full of plecs and neon tetras, a discarded skateboard and a felted library platform in a hard to define but restful color. Back in the UK she had moved from educational roles to organizational ones in art museums, built environment advocacy, and a rural artist studio. Clare teaches undergraduate museum studies at Virginia Commonwealth University and is a candidate in the Media, Art, and Text Ph.D. program.

During van Loenen’s residency, she created An Atlas of Administration.
