This course is a central element of the MFA experience at Parsons and is focused exclusively on the development of students' work in the studio. Its goal is to strengthen students’ understanding of their own work and how it relates to the broad range of techniques, forms and ideas that comprise contemporary art. It is comprised of focused work time in the studio and weekly 45-minute, one-on-one studio visits between the student and a professor to seriously reflect on the student’s methods, ideas, process and final work. The focus of the studio visits will be on students’ personal visions and development as self-reflexive, critically engaged artists. These studio visits allow students to actively and consciously immerse themselves in a lived experience of the world of art through a dialogue with core faculty members who are actively engaged makers of contemporary culture. An integral part of Graduate Core is the Parsons Visiting Artist’s Lecture Series. The weekly lectures features prominent artists and critics who discuss their current practices in relationship to larger trends in contemporary culture. Students have a studio visit with approximately two of the visiting artists across the semester and have the opportunity to learn about a wide range of artistic practices through post-lecture dialogue with the visitors.
