"Governing Bodies" is a collaborative group show that tests democratic mechanisms in creative practice.

Inspired by the United States’ 2016 national election, "Governing Bodies" began as a process to enhance community and to dissect democratic decision making. Over nine weeks, the artists in the exhibition met weekly to make work using a variety of voting processes, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of collective consensus.

"Governing Bodies" features work from current Parsons MFA Photography students Zeshan Ahmed, Maryanne Braine, Siho Chang, Amanda Field, Shannon Finnell, Isadora Frost, Hannah Harley, María del Mar Hernández Gil de Lamadrid, Huang Guaier + Wang Runzhong, Mónika Izing, Jenna Petrone, Ariana Sarwari, and Richard Wade with curation led by Kayla Seifert (MA History of Design and Curatorial Practice). 

Support provided by the MFA Photography program and the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center.
