The Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s mission is to aid, internationally, those individuals who have worked as artists over a significant period of time. Aziz + Cucher received the fellowship for a new series of jacquard tapestries. Of the series, Aziz + Cucher told Magnolia Editions, “We were really taken with the idea of creating a tapestry that was an extension of all the video work we did, but in the style of a Renaissance tapestry that deals with narrative or an event — in this case, a current event. We’re interested in the politics of tapestries traditionally and historically, and how we might tap into that in a more contemporary way.”
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
