Artist in Public Culture/Urban Space


Beginning Associate Professor, tenured, beginning July 1, 2005. Rank and salary commensurate with qualifications and experience and based upon UC pay scales.

We are seeking an artist who comes from a visual art, architectural, or urban studies background, and preferably works across these disciplines as both a practitioner and a theorist. The candidate should work with the city as a site of investigation and develop ways of intervening in urban space. This could be someone who works in the mode of public art or tactical intervention into public debate but more generally, they should work with a problematic of the public and the politics of the public sphere.

UCSD is a research university that actively promotes and supports creative work within a broadly interdisciplinary arts department that includes studio, computing, art and media history, theory and criticism. Teaching will include both graduate seminars and undergraduate courses, large and small. The candidate will actively participate in the ongoing development of curriculum and facilities. MFA or equivalency and teaching experience required.

Send letter of application, curriculum vitae, names and addresses of three references (do not send letters of recommendation and/or placement files) and evidence of work in the field. This evidence may be in the form of slides, tapes, discs, publications and/or public lectures and should be accompanied by return mailer and postage.
