Parsons Fine Arts MFA is a dynamic two-year, cross-disciplinary program committed to expanding the formal, intellectual and conceptual dimensions of emerging artists’ work. 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.

Parsons Fine Arts is home to an active, international faculty whose work has been included in the Whitney Biennial, Documenta, the Sharjah Biennial and the Sydney Biennale; and exhibited in institutions such as the Arko Art Center, Seoul  and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Additionally our Visiting Artist Lecture Series and our Critic and Curator Series features critically renowned, multi-disciplinary 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 redefine the cutting edge of Contemporary Art. The spring 2017 Visiting Artists Lecture Series features Paul Pfeiffer, Public Art Fund Panel: Commercial Break, Carrie Yamaoka, Will Rawls, Basel Abbas & Ruanne Abou-Rahme, Bo Zheng with Steven Lam (Organized in collaboration with India China Institute), Stephanie Syjuco, Grimanesa Amorós, Leonardo Drew, Torkwase Dyson and Jonathan VanDyke

Parsons Fine Arts BFA
The Fine Arts Undergraduates students are exposed to an array of studio practices, ideas, communities and global relationships. Our students learn all the traditional techniques but they also learn to work more innovatively and are encouraged to push the boundaries of what contemporary art is. We have students working across many media, experimenting with public engagement, video, animation, photography and digital imaging. Some students appropriate images from popular culture to make politically charged statements; others re-purpose found materials and ideas from everyday life.
