Open Rank, Full-time

October 2017

 

COLLEGE

Founded in 1907, California College of the Arts (CCA) is an independent non-profit art college with undergraduate programs in architecture, design, fine arts, visual studies, and writing and literature.  The college also has graduate programs in architecture, comics, design, interaction design, curatorial practice, design strategy, fine arts, social practice, film, visual and critical studies, and writing.  Through these programs, the college has created a dynamic and interdisciplinary environment to fulfill the school’s motto of “Make art that matters.”  Diverse cultural perspectives enrich the CCA community and the college believes that continuing to expand the horizons of the students and faculty is essential to achieving its educational objectives. CCA represents over one hundred years of dedication to its mission, whose character reflects its location in the San Francisco Bay Area, where histories of radical politics and technological innovation inform a culturally rich academic community infused by art schools, research universities, world-renowned museums, galleries, start-ups and community-run institutions. With campuses in Oakland and San Francisco, CCA currently enrolls 1,950 full-time students and is embarking on a major campus planning project that will unify the college in one location and ensure its academic excellence for the next century.

 

PROGRAM SUMMARY

CCA’s Sculpture, Individualized, and Community Arts programs are part of the Fine Arts division, and are dynamic hubs of interdisciplinary pedagogy.

The Sculpture Program addresses the experiential complex of materials, the social and poetic life of objects, and the deep historical context of all cultural production. Through engaged mentoring and a lively exchange with their peers, students explore a diverse range of forms and media in order to develop an individualized practice shaped around sustained curiosity and creative dexterity to craft new conceptual possibilities.

The Individualized Program is for students whose work bridges media and disciplines that fall outside regular program and department structures. The Program encourages cross-disciplinary studies throughout the college’s programs, enabling students to work with diverse faculty in design, architecture, writing, and fine arts programs.

The Community Arts Program is an interdisciplinary, community-based approach to creative practice. The program explores ways artists interact, collaborate, and intervene in a variety of social networks with the aim of building sustainable community relationships, engaging cultural diversity, and stimulating social transformation. Encouraged to experiment with new genres, mediums, and technologies, students create their own set of hybrid practices, adding new ideas

PROGRAM SUMMARY

CCA’s Graphic Design program offers a leading, studio-based, Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. The program is dedicated to conceptual exploration alongside practice-based problem-solving. The pedagogy is grounded in practical knowledge, critical awareness, social and cultural engagement, and the spirit of experimentation.

Our students are makers and systems thinkers. The form of their work varies widely, but it always strives to be well-crafted, thoughtful, and appropriate. Our students are encouraged to develop an awareness of the context of their work, a sensitivity for where, when, and for whom they are designing. Our faculty expose students to diverse design perspectives and encourage them to develop a culturally competent and personally committed point of view. Our rigorous curriculum trains students in a practice that balances observation and research with thinking and making.

We believe the classroom is where the work begins, not where it ends. Our graduates become leaders in the field—developing their own practices or working in larger, collaborative settings—creating and contributing to contemporary culture and society.


POSITION SUMMARY

CCA invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Graphic Design to begin August  2018.

In addition to teaching in the Graphic Design program, there is a potential for candidates to expand their teaching into related undergraduate and graduate programs at CCA such as the MFA in Design, the BFA and MDes programs in Interaction Design, the BFA in Illustration, and the First Year Program. The position also requires a commitment to continued professional work with significant contributions in the field of practice.

In keeping with the college’s commitment to diversity, community engagement, and social justice, we seek candidates who will cultivate an equitable studio environment and a diverse and inclusive learning community.

The CCA Illustration Program and CCA Alumni Association are partnering to host this 2018 event at the Hubbell Street Gallery on January 16 - February 02, 2018. There will be a Show Reception and an Alumni Weekend featuring speakers and workshops. 

ABOUT THE SHOW: The title of the show is ILLUSTRATING RESISTANCE.  

Theme: In the era of Trump, artists everywhere are responding to the toxic political climate, the rise of hate groups, the dismantling of environmental protections, and the possibility of war.  Racism, Misogyny, and Homophobia are being normalized by people in power.  Your work might express outrage and defiance, or employ humor. The art might celebrate individuals working to restore social justice, peace, and environmental stewardship. We want to see your take on a subject which moves you.  Express yourself in any media and genre. Examples: editorial illustration, comics, sculpture, poster, portrait, narrative painting, surface design, animated GIF.

The deadline to apply for the show is Monday, November 27, 2017 at midnight.

Because space is limited, the exhibition is a themed juried show. The creators of selected pieces will be notified in mid-December 2017 and asked to deliver the work ready for installation on January 09 and 10, 2018.

We’d like to showcase as much work as possible, so in addition to the work installed in the gallery, we plan to create a slideshow featuring the remaining submissions as well as post artwork on a related event website. Feel free to submit multiple pieces, as entries not selected could still appear in the slideshow.

We ask that you try not to exceed 18 inches in any one direction. (Let us know about interesting exceptions.)  Work will be installed on the walls, in cases, on shelves and shown on monitors.

Drop-Off Times:

Tuesday, January 09th from 12:00PM to 4:00PM at 161 Hubbell Street. 

Wednesday, January 10th from 12:00PM to 4:00PM at 161 Hubbell Street. 

**All works selected for the Alumni Show must be received by 4pm on January 10th, 2018. 

If you would like to ship your artwork, our shipping address is 450 Irwin Street, San Francisco, CA 94107. We are unable to cover shipping or insurance charges. Please include a return shipping label so we can send your work back to you after the show.

travel related to their coursework. Funding may go towards speaking at a
conference, conference attendance, or research-related travel, and a clear
correlation between the trip and the student applicant’s studies at CCA must be
made. This grant is not for travel expenses related to study abroad courses.

The maximum award for an individual travel grant is $500. The grants are
competitive; not all students applying for a grant will receive one.

Grants are for travel that has yet to occur at the time of submission. (Retroactive
grants will not be awarded.)

This application is for submission of proposal for UDIST course to be considered for summer 2018 semester. 

Currently, only CCA faculty who teach in the year of application or on College-approved sabbatical are eligible to apply (i.e., the academic year prior to the academic year the UDIST course will be taught).
For courses that are co-taught or team taught, at least one faculty instructor must be teaching or at CCA on College-approved sabbatical in the year of application.

Please ensure you have reviewed the UDIST proposal guidelines and learning outcomes prior to submitting your application.

The proposal must be interdisciplinary in order to be accepted. Interdisciplinary studios often fall into one of the three following structures:

1. A topic-based course that is relevant to students working in any discipline and engages students in cross-disciplinary discussions and dialogues and studio-based learning.

2. A multidisciplinary course that involves at least three disciplines across at least two divisions, often with an emphasis on collaborative work.

3. A course that approaches interdisciplinarity as a specific discipline in its own right in which interdisciplinary is understood as more than “a variety of disciplines.” Addresses practices that are interdisciplinary in nature.

Interdisciplinary Approach

Proposals should demonstrate an understanding of the different learning/working/processing styles within different disciplines and employ these to expand student understanding and learning.

Relevance & Innovation

The subject is relevant to CCA students and offers valuable experiences that are not available to them in their discipline-specific coursework. Proposals that explore contemporary subject matter, advanced materials, exploratory techniques and developing technologies are highly encouraged.

Scheduling

All UDIST courses are offered six hours a week. Classes meet either once a week Monday - Friday (9am-3pm) or twice a week Mon/Wed or Tues/Thur (8am-11am or 4pm-7pm or 7:15pm-10:15pm) and/or 12pm-3pm on an as needed basis).
This application is for general exhibition(s) and gallery usage requests for Summer 2017, Fall 2017, Spring 2018, and Summer 2018. 

PLEASE NOTE: The 4/14 application deadline has passed, but we are still accepting applications. You will be placed on a wait list and assigned a space after applicants who met the deadline have been assigned or declined based on their request.

Exhibition requests can be placed for departmental exhibitions, faculty organized exhibitions related to coursework, visiting faculty/artists, scholarship or award exhibitions, theme-based or curated exhibitions organized by Faculty or CCA student groups, project based exhibitions, and student group exhibitions. In 2017, we are expanding this application to include proposals to activate the Hubbell Street Project Space, located at 131 Hubbell Street, with priority going to CCA graduate students. 

We understand that plans may still be in flux, tell us what you know.
