Shani K Parsons

Since the mid-90s, Shani K Parsons has pursued a multidisciplinary practice focused initially through the lenses of architecture and urban planning, then installation and graphic design, and most recently through research, writing, curation, and collaboration. In the process she has produced an eclectic body of work ranging from intimate artist’s books to immersive exhibitions for venues including the American Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Rhode Island School of Design, the Museum of Chinese in America (MoCA NY), and Mixed Greens, a contemporary art gallery in Chelsea. After moving to Toronto, she established TYPOLOGY Projects as a way to provide opportunities for curators and artists to mount fully realized exhibitions within a critical framework. Through a wide-ranging annual program of exhibitions supported by the production of original publications, editions, and related events, TYPOLOGY is an open platform for diverse curatorial and artistic practices and perspectives, and a forum for the exchange of ideas on exhibition-making as a way to engage and inform audiences from all walks of life.
