Siobhan Rigg is an Associate Professor of Studio Arts and currently also serves as Program Head of Design at the George Washington University’s Corcoran School of Arts & Design . Rigg is a multidisciplinary artist, teacher, and writer whose creative and research interests center on social and environmental micro-histories. Their work is concerned, most immediately with the ways toxic legacies are distributed within the built environment, and more broadly, with theoretical and material explorations of governance and land use. Rigg teaches across the areas of studio arts, time-based media, and social practice at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
