Welcome to the Department of Art & Art History

— filed under:


The Hunter Department of Art & Art History is a union of three distinct areas—Art History, Studio Art and the Galleries. Students can practice many media, can study art history and theory, and can help curate shows and write catalog essays, gaining practical experience as well as knowledge. This holistic approach, seeing the department as a manifold of activities and study opportunities students can selectively engage and take advantage of, is a distinctive aspect of studying in the Department of Art & Art History at Hunter College.

The urban environment is inherently conducive to fostering the department's triadic, holistic aspect of study: the global art world—an integration of production, curating, and historical analysis—is at our doorstep and is part of daily life at Hunter. The faculty actively uses our art-rich environment to meet our learning goals and to shape our courses to incorporate an engagement with our environment.

In a Heartbeat is a series of mixed media works on paper, canvas and sculpture, inspired by an event that occurred on April 4, 2012, Wednesday.

Jean Chiang is a multimedia artist. Her work explores the poignancy and fragility of personal and familial histories through subtle manipulations of mixed media. Visually deconstructing intimate aspects of her existence, Chiang’s tactile works, delicate and temporal often elicit visceral responses.

Jean Chiang received her MFA  in Sculpture from Hunter College. She is a 2012 Fulbright Scholar and was an Artist in Residence at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing arts in Kingston Jamaica 2012.

Chiang has honed her craft in residencies at Parsons in Paris France, the Allende Institute in Mexico and The Garendo Gallery in Mashiko Japan.

Her work has been shown internationally. DVCAI in Miami Florida, P.S. 1,The Bronx Museum of Arts, The Asian American Art Center, The Lower Eastside Print Shop, Sculpture Center,  and the Havana Biennale in Cuba are a few of the places that have exhibited her work.

Open hours: Wed. 3-5pm, Thurs. 3-5pm, Sat & Sun 6-8pm
