Most Recent Chair

Tahir Hemphill

Tahir Hemphill's practice investigates the role systems play in the generation of form and the role collaborative knowledge production plays in the resilience of communities. Over the past 20 years, as an artist who works with technology, Hemphill's creative research has been fueled by the tension between his reverence for traditional models of scientific inquiry and the wisdom of uncertainty contained in the lived experience. This year, Hemphill holds the Harissios Papamarkou Chair in Education at the Kluge Center at the Library of Congress. As a scholar-in-residence, he is working on his project titled, "Representing Blackness: Media, Technology and Power."
