Parsons Fine Arts is pleased to announce the Fall 2015 Graduate Open Studios. Parsons’s 47 graduate students will open their creative spaces to the public and be available to answer questions and discuss their work. Open studios provides a rare opportunity for visitors to view works in progress and meet the artists in an informal setting. Visitors will gain insight into the diverse practices within the school’s studio art program, which embraces interdisciplinary experimentation, intellectual rigor, and innovation.
The MFA at Parsons Fine Arts is a two-year cross-disciplinary program committed to expanding the formal, intellectual, and conceptual dimensions of emerging artists’ work. The program curriculum centers on one-on-one studio visits, group critiques, critical theory seminars, personalized classes, writing, and research for studio practice, as well as professional practices seminars.
Parsons Fine Arts is home to an international and dynamic faculty whose work has been included in exhibitions and institutions such as the Whitney Biennial, Documenta, the Sydney Biennale, and the Museum of Modern Art. Students also benefit from interaction with an impressive array of visiting artists and critics who are redefining the cutting edge of art in the 21st century. This year’s guests include Simone Leigh, Hank Willis Thomas, Glen Ligon, R.H. Quaytman, and Shazia Sikander, among others.
