Biographical/Historical note

Mary Jane Jacob is a curator, writer, and educator who pioneered the areas of public, site-specific, and socially engaged art. Jacob was born in Chicago and received her M.A. in the History of Art and Museum Studies from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. After serving as the Chief Curator of the Museums of Contemporary Art in Chicago and Los Angeles from 1980-1986 and 1986-1990, respectively, Jacob shifted her workplace from the museum to the street to critically engage the discourse around public space, organizing such site and community-based programs as Places with a Past and Places with a Future in Charleston, Culture in Action in Chicago, and Conversations at The Castle in Atlanta.

In 1991 and again in 2000–2008 Jacob was the curator of visual arts projects for Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston South Carolina. Inspired by the open curatorial format devised by curators Kaspar König and Klaus Bussman for the 1987 exhibition Skulptur Projekte Münster, Jacob worked closely with twenty-three artists to develop site-specific projects for Places with a Past in 1991. Jacob’s near decade of programming with the Spoleto Festival involved ambitious project commissions with countless artists (including David Hammons, Christian Boltanski, J. Morgan Puett, and Lorna Simpson) in addition to curatorial collaborations including a recurring project with South African curator Tumelo Mosaka.

From 1992-1993 Jacob organized the community-based art project and exhibition Culture in Action for Sculpture Chicago with artists such as Mark Dion, Suzanne Lacy and Grennan & Sperandio. For the project artists worked in direct partnership with community members to explore the changing nature of public art along with its relationship to social issues.

Mary Jane Jacob is currently a professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is the Executive Director of Exhibitions and Exhibition Studies. Furthering its position in fostering critical thinking and open dialogue, Jacob also launched in 2016 SAIC’s Institute for Curatorial Research and Practice, for which she now also serves as director. At the Sullivan Galleries, she led the citywide program Studio Chicago (2010–11).

Mary Jane Jacob has probed creative practioners’ relationship to audiences and within society in her co-edited volumes Buddha Mind in Contemporary Art (University of California Press, 2004); Learning Mind: Experience into Art (University of California Press, 2009); Chicago Makes Modern: How Creative Minds Changed Society (University of Chicago Press, 2012); The Studio Reader: On the Space of Artists (University of Chicago, 2010); and the five-volume Chicago Social Practice History series (University of Chicago, 2014-16).
