As a Professor of Art History at SCAD Hong Kong, you’ll provide students with the expertise needed to investigate and explain the complex relationships between context and cultural production. You’ll help SCAD students navigate historical and contemporary expressive practices through critical encounters with art, artifacts, and other forms of cultural production. Working with a diverse and highly credentialed art history faculty, you’ll motivate students to think creatively and critically in an active and engaging learning environment.

Through art history coursework, students gain a curiosity for creative inquiry, invention, critical thinking, and visual analysis. You and your students will have access to SCAD Libraries — the largest physical library holdings among art, design, and music schools, including rare, valuable, and significant works — as well as the university’s extensive permanent collection. SCAD invites international artists and scholars to engage in creative discourse in enriching lecture series, symposia, and events. Recent guests have included Carlos Cruz-Diez, Alfredo Jaar, Carrie Mae Weems, Philippe de Montebello, Jerry Saltz, and Louis Menand. Together, SCAD’s network of libraries, museums, galleries, and signature events provides unparalleled opportunities for students to explore the emergence of innovative forms of expression and engage in scholarly research.

Hong Kong is a global artistic hub with a wide variety of art galleries and museums to support the study of art history. From skyscrapers to sacred temples, white sand beaches to mountain views, it provides the perfect backdrop for teaching and learning.
