Studio Artist Program

Jill Frank

Jill Frank is a visual artist working primarily in photography. She received her BA in Photography from Bard College in 2001 and her MFA in Studio Art from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2008. Frank recently completed the SOMA residency in Mexico City and relocated from Chicago to Atlanta to teach photography full-time at Georgia State University.

Frank’s current projects explore the history of photographic representation by creating alternate versions of images that dominate the vernacular of Western culture. Her work has shown nationally and internationally, and recent awards include grants from The City of Chicago Community Art Assistance Program and The Kentucky Foundation for Women. Selected solo exhibitions include Contemporary Art Workshop, Chicago; Golden Gallery, Chicago; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
