Welcome to the Parsons Fine Arts MFA Class of 2021 online thesis catalog.

We are pleased to share the work of this extraordinary group of emerging artists, to be held onsite in the Kellen Gallery, 2 West 13th Street, New York, October 26-November 8th. *To register and reserve a time to visit the gallery in person, please click here.

These past 19 months have been a period of profound, unprecedented loss like none other in recent history. Yet, in spite of, or perhaps because of, this collective trauma, these recent graduates have come together to produce a powerful exhibition of new work that shine a bright light into the future. Not a cry in the dark but a celebration of what lays ahead, this work is not only a record of the current moment but a testimony to the strength and perseverance of everyone who is part of this community.

No Vacancy, curated by Jody Graf, will be on view from October 26-November 8th, with work by Akofa Norman, Cai Shen, Di Wang, Gabrielle Randall, Hoang Vo, Hoor Imad Sherpao, Karen Dias, Kat Meese Jostad, and Rita Song.

Jody Graf is a curator and writer based in New York. She is currently an Assistant Curator at MoMA PS1.
