Parsons & Charlesworth


Parsons & Charlesworth are collaborative artists focusing on the objects and habits of humankind. Their inventive sculptural practice relies upon creating objects that allow us to examine our future selves and perhaps navigate better. Utilizing sculpture, objects, narrative writing, and photography, their work addresses key social, ecological and technological challenges of our time, including climate change and the future of work. Recent commissions include the exhibition Designs for Different Futures at the Walker Art Center and the Venice Architecture Biennale at the Central Pavilion. They began collaborating in 2010 after relocating to Chicago from the UK. They both teach at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
