The School of Art & Art History in the College of Architecture, Design and the Arts at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) seeks an artist engaged in active creative practice whose work and critical thinking demonstrate a rigorous and deeply considered approach to art in painting, drawing, sculpture, new media, moving image, and/or photography.

The ideal candidate should be a highly visible artist with an investment in collective dialogue in both undergraduate and graduate level education across disciplines. The successful candidate would join a faculty committed to pushing the boundaries of contemporary art and to transcending genre distinctions, and that encourages intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and the cultivation of radical imagination in our students.

Faculty responsibilities include teaching foundation and upper level undergraduate art courses, graduate seminars, graduate student advising, committee service within the School, College, and University, and strong commitment to a sustained national/international research/exhibition profile.
