What matters most for contemporary photography today? Parsons MFA Photo students were tasked with collectively generating and agreeing on three words that address this question. Their astute responses form the basis for the group exhibition “Keywords For Contemporary Photography: Privacy, Space, Voice” presented as part of Photoville 2016.
Photography itself is often described as particularly sensitive to changes in technology, art, and society-at-large. As a result, what matters for the medium has shifted many times throughout the course of its history and will continue to do so. This exhibition acts as a collective, nuanced and visual definition of what matters for photography today.
A pioneer in art and design education for more than a century, Parsons School of Design is one of the most prestigious and comprehensive colleges of art and design in the world. Critical thinking, collaboration, and reflective practice are at the heart of a Parsons education. Located in the heart of New York City, the school offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the full spectrum of design disciplines. The goal of the MFA program is to prepare graduates to define the creative role of photography within contemporary culture as practicing artists and scholars. The program challenges participants to move beyond current paradigms in order to anticipate and set trends, rather than follow them. A rigorous critique process and regular meetings with faculty, professional artists, and visiting critics help students develop individual points of view and to situate themselves and their work within larger historical, theoretical, and contemporary visual contexts.
