The works in this exhibition represent a collective conversation being undertaken by this current generation of emerging artists. These artists are unapologetic in their pursuit to locate themselves and activate their ideas in this rapidly evolving world. They seek to impact the present and shape the future. They chose to confront the larger questions that often do not reflect light, to grapple with the possibilities and conundrums. The work is full with quirks and contradictions, tragedy and humor, echoes of the past and contemplations on the future, personal introspection and calls for revolution. Most importantly this exhibition contains glimpses of a future.

Artists: Adam Abel, Alison Chen, Charlie Rubin, Chelsey Morell, Christina Labey, Colleen Fitzgerald, Denise Monczewski, Devon Dill, Dominica Paige, Dylan Entelis, Eugen Litwinow, Haley Bueschlen, Jeanette Spicer, John Deamond, Jose Soto, Joy McKinney, Kate Stone, Kreerath Sunittramat, Leif Huron, Light Park, Lisa Haefner, Madelaine Edmonds, Maria Sprowls, Nathan Bett, Noelle Theard, Phoenix Lindsay-Hall, Regis Trigano, Sara Maria Salamone, Sharon Ma, Sylvia Hardy, Terrance James, Tony Flanagan, Yichen Zhou

About Parsons the New School for Design:
A pioneer in art and design education for more than a century, Parsons is one of the most prestigious and comprehensive colleges of art and design in the world. Critical thinking, collaboration, and reflective practice are at the heart of a Parsons education. Located in the heart of New York City, the school offers undergraduate and graduate programs. A student-centered curriculum allows for both focused and interdisciplinary learning to master concepts, technologies, and research methods that cut across a wide array of fields. By synthesizing theory with craft, and combining art and design studies with the liberal arts and business, Parsons prepares its students to shape scholarship in their field and make art and design that matters. Its faculty of notable artists, critics, historians, writers, and scholars exemplifies an extraordinary breadth of vision. They challenge convention by encouraging experimentation, nurturing alternative worldviews, and joining theory with practice in sophisticated and innovative ways. Parsons prepares its students to move beyond current paradigms—to anticipate and set trends, rather than follow them. An integral part of The New School, Parsons builds on the university’s legacy of progressive ideals, scholarship, and pedagogy. Parsons alumni rank among the leaders in their fields, with a shared commitment to creatively and critically addressing the complexities of life in the 21st century.
