MFA Fine Arts Students In Pulse New York

Parsons MFA Fine Arts students recently designed a site-specific installation for PULSE New York, the country’s leading contemporary art fair, held March 5-8 at Manhattan’s Pier 40. The installation served as a reading room for visitors and featured work by students chosen by independent curator Eva Diaz. This was the second year that Parsons created an installation for the fair, and is the only school to be featured with a special exhibition in the fair.

The installation incorporated pieces by each of the more than forty MFA Fine Arts candidates at Parsons, as well as books from the students’ personal collections, which will give visitors a sample of what students are reading and thinking about in today’s art schools. The booth was conceived as a space for reading, relaxation, discussion, and contemplation, set apart from the frenetic pace of the fair.
