The Tyler School of Art at Temple University has hired the largest cohort of new faculty members in the school’s history.
“I’m delighted to welcome this remarkable group,” said Dean Susan E. Cahan, who came to Tyler from Yale in 2017. “They believe, as I do, in Tyler’s vision of cultural production as aesthetically and socially transformative action. I can’t wait to see what they’ll motivate our students to achieve.”
The new recruits—who appear left to right in the photo above—include:
- C.T. Jasper, whose art tackles legacies of cross-cultural encounters, integrating sculpture, installation art, sound and moving image.
- Emily Neumeier, an art historian of the Islamic world at the forefront of new technologies, from digital mapping to photogrammetry.
- Mark Thomas Gibson, a painter, printmaker, book artist, writer and activist whose work addresses U.S. history and racial politics.
- Linda Earle, a champion of inclusivity and freedom of expression in the arts and education. She will lead Tyler’s Art Administration program.
- David Herman Jr., a lens-based artist, educator and scholar who explores perception as a social and political endeavor.
- Mallory Weston, whose practice marries traditional jewelry and textile techniques to create large, wearable metal pieces.
- Pablo Meninato, an architect and historian who has worked for leading architectural firms in the U.S, Argentina and Mexico for 20 years.
- Doug Bucci, an innovative metals and jewelry artist who will be Tyler Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM’s first new program head in 56 years.
