University of Hawai‘i at Manoa just launched a search for a full-time, tenure-track faculty member in sculpture. Seeking your help in distributing it to the APA network because we are in particular seeking someone with a specific interest in teaching and practicing sculpture relevant to the context of Hawai‘i and the Asia Pacific. The ideal applicant has a fluid practice that incorporates both the material and conceptual languages of contemporary sculpture. The applicant also ideally has a vision for the future of sculpture and art in general.
Dear friends and colleagues,
The Department of Art and Art History at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa (UHM) is conducting a search for a full-time, tenure-track faculty member in the specialization of sculpture. The position description is posted here. I am sending this to you, as I am hoping that you will circulate this opportunity among those who may be interested in applying.
UHM is Research I liberal arts public university located in Honolulu on the island of O‘ahu. Our campus has approximately 19,000 students and is the flagship of the ten-campus University of Hawai‘i system.
The UHM Department of Art and Art History supports a broad vision of artistic and sculptural practice. The sculpture area is one among many studios dedicated to thinking about art and creative practice as an intellectually and materially rich method of inquiry.
We are one of the largest departments at UH Manoa, serving over 300 majors, and the only master’s degree granting program in the visual arts in the State of Hawai‘i. In addition to serving our majors who are from Hawai‘i, the continental U.S., and around world, each semester students from other disciplines enroll in our art studio and art history classes to fulfill their university requirements, for the pleasure of exploring a creative medium, and/or learning the richness of global artistic traditions.
The department offers degree programs in the disciplines of Studio Art and Art History. We award a BA in each; BFA and MFA in Studio Art; and MA in Art History. The BFA and MFA include concentrations in ceramics, drawing/painting, electronic art, fiber, glass, graphic design, print media (digital imaging, photography, printmaking), and sculpture. The Art History area is unique in the US for its emphasis on Asia, the Pacific and modern/contemporary.
Our building is centrally located on the campus. It includes two galleries, a visiting artist/scholar program, and the John Young Museum of Art in Krauss Hall. The museum showcases John Young’s collection of historical objects from Asia and the Pacific in rotation, and is also a learning laboratory that serves our Art History program and the university’s Museum Studies program. Additional information about the department and faculty may be found at hawaii.edu/art.
Thank you for sharing this information. Questions can be directed to Professor Mary Babcock, Search Committee Chair.
