Julietta Cheung

Associate Professor


Julietta Cheung (MFA 2012) is an assistant professor in the Department of Contemporary Practices. Her work examines the contemporary American narrative of the future as it is fabulated and interpreted by a diverse public. She mines and unmakes her source material—popular writing, buzz terms, and utility objects—and remakes them in her typographic prints, sculptures, installations, and reading performances. Cheung joins SAIC from Florida State University where she was an assistant professor in the Department of Art. She received her Bachelor of Science from Syracuse University and Master of Fine Arts from SAIC.

This seminar consists of weekly lectures, colloquia, and studio visits. Students are expected to arrive with completed and semi-completed works and be prepared to make and re-make new works throughout the summer sessions. A wide variety of readings chosen by faculty will guide discussions that concentrate on problems concerning methods of artmaking, distribution, and interpretation. Readings will include examples drawn from the emerging category of conceptual writing as well as crucial art historical texts, literature, and poetry.
