The Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons The New School for Design presents The Storyteller, an exhibition exploring how contemporary artists use narrative as a way to understand the social and political events of our time.
Curated by independent curators Claire Gilman and Margaret Sundell, The Storyteller features video, still photography, drawing, mixed media and installation works that engage the documentary capacity of art to bear witness to the rapid, sometimes violent, transformations of our time.
Featured artists include Hugo Boss Prize finalist Cao Fei, Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller with filmmaker Mike Figgis, Bucksbaum Award winner Omer Fast, Mounir Fatmi, Ryan Gander, Lamia Joreige, Joachim Koester, Emanuel Licha, Missing Books (Maria Barnas, Maxine Kopsa and Germaine Kruip), Steve Mumford, Adrian Paci, Michael Rakowitz, Liisa Roberts, and Hito Steyerl.
Colloquium participants include exhibition artist Steve Mumford and exhibition curators Claire Gilman and Margaret Sundell, and will be moderated by Kate Fowle, executive director of iCI (Independent Curators International).

The exhibition, tour, and catalogue are made possible, in part, with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the Horace W.
