Jill Frank is an Atlanta-based artist and educator. Currently, an Assistant Professor of Photography at Georgia State University, Frank works primarily in photography and video to explore the ideologies and aesthetics that shape teenage life, her large-scale photographs and sound/video installations reveal the struggle to present one’s identity within unstable environmental, political and social contexts. Diverging from traditional documentary forms, Frank uses sound, scale, repetition and staging to memorialize everyday social events.
Frank attended Bard College and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been reviewed in Art Forum, Art in America and The Paris Review. Solo shows include the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art Georgia.
