Teresa Hubbard joined the faculty of the Department of Art and Art History in 2000, attracted by the university’s status as a Tier One research institution and the numerous archives on campus.

“I continue to admire and learn from the research being conducted by my colleagues throughout the department and campus,” Hubbard said. “Equally inspiring is the level of critical inquiry our students are engaged in with their own work.”

Since 1990, Hubbard has worked collaboratively with Swiss artist and life partner Alexander Birchler. Their practice includes photography, video, and sculpture that asks the viewer to reflect on memory, place, and cinema.

“It is a great honor to be awarded the William and Bettye Nowlin Endowed Professorship,” remarked Hubbard. “The endowment plays a very important role in providing the opportunity for me to constantly challenge my practice, take creative risks, and further my work.”

Hubbard / Birchler’s most recent projects were displayed in the internationally traveling exhibition Sound Speed Marker. The exhibition was presented at Ballroom Marfa and is currently on display at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Ireland. In 2015, Sound Speed Marker will travel to the Blaffer Museum in Houston. A monograph of the exhibition will be published in March 2015.

In the past, Hubbard / Birchler have presented work at Venice Biennial, the Tate Museum Liverpool, Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, Kunsthaus Graz Austria, and the Mori Museum in Tokyo. They are represented by Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in New York, Galerie Bob van Orsouw in Zürich, Galerie Barbara Thumm in Berlin, Galerie Vera Munro in Hamburg, and Lora Reynolds Gallery in Austin.
