The School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design launches Intermedia Initiative

Parsons School of Design at The New School

Fusco herself is enthusiastic about the possibilities. “The most exciting changes in contemporary art of the past thirty years have come from the increasing diversity of the field, its locations, its manifestations and its participants. Art is now understood and celebrated as an interdisciplinary endeavor occurring on a global scale. Nonetheless, too many art schools remain wedded to structures that isolate disciplines rather than bringing them into dialogue. I am very pleased that such critical transformations in art can become palpable through the Intermedia Initiative at Parsons.”
