Parsons Festival 2017: School of Art, Media and Technology Exhibition

Friday, May 19, 2017 more dates through May 19, 2017

Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 2 West 13th Street New York, NY 10011

The School of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons School of Design, is proud to present an exhibit celebrating the first cohort of graduating students in AMT to have undertaken the innovative undergraduate curriculum that rolled out in 2013. The result of a thorough and carefully considered faculty-led review, the new undergraduate curriculum brings into focus the defining characteristics of Parsons: its storied history as a pioneer in design education; its rigorous interrogation of the current state of art and design; its status as a large, comprehensive art and design school housed within a vibrant, research-driven university; and finally its place within the broader context of New York City, an immersive art and design laboratory and world of creative practice.

Opening Reception: Monday, May 8th at 6:00 PM

Closing Reception: Thursday, May 18th at 6:00 PM

This exhibition is sponsored by the School of Art, Media, and Technology and is part of Parsons Festival 2017.

Parsons Festival is an annual series of art and design events in which cutting-edge student work is presented to the Parsons community and the public. The festival takes place at the end of each academic year and includes thesis exhibitions and critiques, thought-provoking public programs, interactive installations, gallery openings, workshops, and special events.

The New School’s Parsons School of Design, which was recently named the number one art and design school in the United States by Top Universities, has been a pioneer in art and design education for more than a century. Based in New York but active around the world, Parsons offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the full spectrum of design disciplines. Critical thinking and collaboration are at the heart of a Parsons education. An integral part of The New School, Parsons builds on the university’s legacy of progressive ideals, scholarship, and pedagogy. Parsons graduates are leaders in their respective fields with a shared commitment to creatively and critically addressing the complexities of life in the 21st century.
