Faculty & Administration-Graduate Art

Our faculty are nationally and internationally recognized and represent a broad spectrum of contemporary practices that range from time-based media and performance, to painting, sculpture, photography, and installation. Their work addresses conceptual territories, exploring topics such as race, globalism, the environment, science, social justice, and material culture.

Recently, faculty have exhibited at venues including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art (Washington, D.C.), the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Memory and Human Rights (Santiago, Chile), the National Portrait Gallery, and the National Academy of Sciences. They receive critical review in publications such as Artforum, Art in America, and The New York Times.

Among other honors, faculty members Ron Leax and Buzz Spector are recipients of the College Art Association's Distinguished Teaching of Art Award.
