What matters most for contemporary photography today? Parsons MFA Photo students were tasked with collectively generating and agreeing on three words that address this question. Their astute responses form the basis for the group exhibition “Keywords For Contemporary Photography: Privacy, Space, Voice” presented as part of Photoville 2016.

Photography itself is often described as particularly sensitive to changes in technology, art, and society-at-large. As a result, what matters for the medium has shifted many times throughout the course of its history and will continue to do so. This exhibition acts as a collective, nuanced and visual definition of what matters for photography today.

ARTIST BIO

Artists are current graduate students in the MFA Photography program at Parsons School of Design in New York City.

ORGANIZATION BIO

The MFA in Photography program at Parsons School of Design functions as a 21st-century studio and think tank. Students are encouraged to develop their individual vision in a collaborative interdisciplinary environment and to explore related technologies, focusing on the relationship between concept and production. A rigorous critique process and regular meetings with faculty, visiting artists and critics help students develop a unique point of view and situate themselves and their work within the larger historical, theoretical, and contemporary visual contexts.
