The works in this exhibition represent a collective conversation being undertaken by the current generation of emerging artists. These artists are unapologetic in their pursuit to locate themselves and activate their ideas in this rapidly evolving world. They seek to impact the present and shape the future. They choose to confront the larger questions that often do not reflect light, to grapple with possibilities and conundrums.
The work is filled with quirks and contradictions, tragedy and humor, echoes of the past and future contemplations, personal introspection, and calls for revolution.
Most importantly, this exhibition is a glimpse at the future.
The artists represented in the exhibition are students in the Masters of Fine Arts in Photography degree program at Parsons School of Design in New York City.
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.
A student-centered curriculum allows for both focused and interdisciplinary learning to master concepts, technologies, and research methods that cut across a wide array of fields. By synthesizing theory with craft, and combining art and design studies with the liberal arts and business,
Parsons prepares its students to shape scholarship in their field, and make art and design that matters. Its faculty of notable artists, design practitioners, critics, historians, writers, and scholars exemplifies an extraordinary breadth of vision.
