Jill Frank was born in Atlanta GA, raised in Louisville, KY, and currently lives and works in Atlanta. She received a BA in photography in 2001 from Bard College and an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2006. Her work has shown nationally and internationally, selected solo exhibitions include Golden Gallery, Chicago; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Her work has been featured in Art Papers and reviews of her work have appeared in Art Forum, The Paris Review, and Bad at Sports. Frank relocated from Chicago to Atlanta in 2011 to teach photography at Georgia State University. Her work deals primarily with the negotiation and indeterminacy of dominant social and cultural narratives. Frank’s current work investigates how American “rites of passage” inform cultural status symbols and identity formation.
