"The Nocturnals" Lecture Series

Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 1:00 pm

The Bark Room, Room M104, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 2 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011

Organized by Niki Kriese at the Parsons’ School of Art and Design History and Theory, this lecture series features Parsons staff-members who are creative practitioners in their ‘off-hours.  

Seven artists will present and discuss their work, which includes visual art, writing, sound, and choreography. While the breadth is rich, these artists share an obsession with the invisible, and a sense of longing for the unattainable. Yet the work does not feel sorry for itself. It is sharp, humorous, self-effacing, and self-aware, while willing to relinquish control long enough for something magical to happen.

Participating artists include:

 - Paul Nicholson – February 20

 - Jill Corson – February 27

 - Rebecca Nison – March 6

 - Niki Kriese – March 13

 - Carolina Wheat – March 20

 - Heechan Kim – April 3

 - Amanda Keller – April 10

With generous assistance from the Parsons Staff Development Fund
