In light of growing concerns surrounding COVID-19,  Parsons Fine Arts made the decision to cancel our Spring Open Studios for both the MFA and BFA Fine Arts Students which were scheduled for Thursday, March 12.

In lieu of being able to congregate, we would like to take the opportunity to share the online presence of our vibrant group of Graduate Students. Their online presence will offer insight into the diverse practices within our international studio art program that cultivates interdisciplinary, media-driven skill sets, experimentation and intellectual rigor, while providing an innovative learning community for emerging artists and allow you to get in touch with them as well.

The Parsons MFA Fine Arts course is a dynamic two-year, cross-disciplinary program. We foster studio-based research and scholarship that extends the boundaries of contemporary cultural expression, developed through a global understanding of the arts. Parsons Fine Arts is committed to diversity among students and faculty that provides a potent learning community.  Housed within both Parsons School of Design and The New School University, the Fine Arts program is uniquely positioned within a progressive educational environment. Our international student body has access to a wide spectrum of activities, ranging from rigorous formal and aesthetic investigations to cross-disciplinary collaborations with design, performing arts and humanities students, to public forums that address pressing social and political concerns.To learn more about the program, please contact interim Program Director, Anthony Aziz: aziza [​at​] newschool.edu.

Parsons Fine Arts is home to an internationally acclaimed faculty whose work has been included in the Whitney Biennial, Venice Biennale, Documenta, the Sharjah Biennial and the Sydney Biennale; and exhibited in institutions such as the New Museum, the Whitney Museum and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.  Additionally our Visiting Artist Lecture Series and our Critic and Curator Series features renowned, multidisciplinary artists, curators and critics who are available for one-on-one visits with graduate students. This culture of dialogical exchange supports our graduate students to help define their role as emerging artists in the field. The spring 2020 Visiting Artists Lecture series features Steffani Jemison, Jes Fan, David Reed, Jon Rubin, Indira Allegra, Meriem Bennani, Kerry Downey, Alison O’Daniel, Jean Shin, and Adonis Volanakis.
