Paige Taul is an Oakland, CA native who received her B.A. in Studio Art with a concentration in cinematography from the University of Virginia and her M.F.A in Moving Image from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Her work engages with and challenges assumptions of black cultural expression and notions of belonging through experimental cinematography. Her interests lie in observing environmental and familial connections to concepts tied to race-based expectations and to expose those boundaries of identity in veins such as religion, style, language, and other black community based experiences.

She is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Film, Video, New Media, and Animation at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
