The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) presents New Views: FIT Art and Design Faculty Exhibition, which opened Saturday, March 7, and features more than 90 works—from intimate to large-scale installations—including masks, photography, collage, painting, sculpture, illustration, video, interactive media, installation, textiles, apparel, and jewelry.
This annual exhibition intends to show the full and diverse range of mediums in which the college’s art and design faculty work, with a particular emphasis on pieces that reflect each artist’s current point of view.
“The teaching and learning environment in the School of Art and Design is collaborative and interdisciplinary,” said Joanne Arbuckle, dean, School of Art and Design. “New Views provides a glimpse into the talent and breadth of the art and design faculty at FIT.”
FIT’s School of Art and Design comprises 17 programs—Accessories Design, Advertising Design, Communication Design, Computer Animation and Interactive Media, Fabric Styling, Fashion Design, Fine Arts, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design, Jewelry Design, Menswear, Packaging Design, Photography, Textile/Surface Design, Toy Design, and Visual Presentation and Exhibition Design.
This year’s interdisciplinary exhibition parallels and celebrates the rich diversity that FIT offers the students in the School of Art and Design. Faculty members are encouraged to submit work in mediums related to their particular discipline, while others choose to work in mediums outside their chosen field, making the exhibition even more diverse. New Views is co-curated by Associate Professor Jeffrey Way and Assistant Professor Cynthia Gallagher of the Department of Fine Arts.
