On January 29, Parsons presents The Storyteller, an exhibition that explores how contemporary artists use narrative to process and explain important social and political events.
On view at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center through April 9, The Storyteller features video, photography, drawing, mixed media, and installation works by an international group of artists, including Omer Fast, Cao Fei, Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller, filmmaker Mike Figgis, Mounir Fatmi, Ryan Gander, Lamia Joreige, Joachim Koester, Emanuel Licha, Missing Books (Maria Barnas, Maxine Kopsa, and Germaine Kruip), Steve Mumford, Adrian Paci, Michael Rakowitz, Liisa Roberts, and Hito Steyerl. The Storyteller was conceived by independent curators Claire Gilman and Margaret Sundell.
“The New School has long served as a haven for politically engaged artists,” said Radhika Subramaniam, director of the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center. “The Storyteller connects with this tradition by bringing together powerful artists who, through their work, document the rapid, violent transformations of our time and force us to consider the implications of these important events for our world.”
The Storyteller is a traveling exhibition organized and circulated by iCI (Independent Curators International), New York.
