Hannah Feldman,
Affiliate Faculty, Associate Professor in Art History,

Hannah Feldman researches and teaches late modern and contemporary art and visual culture. Her first book, From a Nation Torn: Decolonizing Art and Representation in France (Duke, 20014) considers the theorization of art, violence, spectacle, and the writing of history in France during the decolonial wars that marked the 1960s, especially the Algerian War of Independence. Her work has been supported by grants and fellowships from the Getty Research Institute, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, the Canadian Center for Architecture, and, most recently, by the Mellon Foundation, which has awarded her a New Directions Fellowship for 2015-2017 to pursue her work on urban spaces and public institutions in North Africa and West Asia. Her writings have appeared in Artforum, Art Journal, Frieze, nka: Journal of Contemporary African Art, October, and Third Text, as well as in international exhibition catalogues published by institutions including the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid), the Kunsthalle Zürich, Portikus, Ashkal Alwan, and the Renaissance Society. From 2008-2010, Feldman was Chair of the Art Journal editorial board.

Sherwin Ovid,
Adjunct Lecturer,

Channeling concepts of cultural transmission through the movement of mixed media Sherwin Ovid draws from the experience of immigration as a space of contingent exchange. A morphology of forms encompass  the dynamic interplay of material curiosity forged as a  visual bricolage that make virtuous  the implicitly uneven similitude of diasporic phenomena. Domestic spaces of leisure yield a plethora of objects in his study of migratory aesthetics, invoking class aspirations that fuse ornament and heirloom. Pigment, cotton, resin, dirt, are but a few of the cumalitive ingredients that entice us to the surfaces of his work. However, a melange of narrative idioms underpin the vernacular dexterity of forms that bristles against and along the  primacy of formal cohesion.

Ovid received his BFA from the School Art Institute of Chicago in 2007 and is recieved Master’s of Fine Art from the University of Illinois at Chicago where he received a Lincoln Fellowship. Ovid has exhibited with Unit 2 Art Collective in Chicago, University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Chicago Pop-Up Loop Alliance Gallery and Swimming Pool Project Space in Chicago.
