Joy McKinney
Thursday, April 27
12PM in the Bark Room, 2 W. 13th Street

Joy McKinney was born in Montgomery, Alabama. She received her undergraduate degree from the Atlanta College of Art and her MFA in photography from Parsons The New School for Design. Her work has been presented in various venues and publications in Europe, and the United States. Her work explores social and cultural attitude towards gender and race through photography and video.

Created in 2014 by Niki Kriese of AMT, the annual staff lecture series showcases the creative practices of Parsons staff members.This year’s series features artists who work with transformation, communication, storytelling, alchemy. There is a constant shifting of subject, object, author, audience, and the goal is to complicate before they clarify. Using film, text, painting, and science, the artists approach their topics from different directions but share that same need to tell stories and describe experiences.
