Thesis work by students completing master’s degrees at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) will be on display at the school’s annual graduate thesis exhibition, RISD Grad Show 2022. Celebrating the creativity RISD’s newest graduate alumni will bring to the world, the exhibition and digital publication include work by students in Architecture, Ceramics, Design Engineering, Digital + Media, Furniture Design, Glass, Global Arts and Cultures, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Interior Architecture, Jewelry + Metalsmithing, Landscape Architecture, Nature-Culture-Sustainability Studies, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Teaching + Learning in Art + Design, and Textiles. Work can be viewed digitally at risdgrad.show.
Returning to the Rhode Island Convention Center for the first time since 2019, the exhibition will be on view in Hall A from May 26 to June 4, 2022. The show is free and open to the public daily from 12–5pm (10am–6pm on June 4, the day of RISD’s Commencement), with a public opening reception on May 25 from 6–8pm.
RISD Grad Show 2022 invites viewers to experience an expansive range of exploratory work by emerging artists and designers. The art selected represents the culmination of each student’s experience in RISD’s dynamic and diverse graduate programs. As in years past, the 28,000-square-foot space will be custom-constructed, with more than 1,100 linear feet of walls forming a network of smaller galleries. The unique configuration of the large, flexible space provides remarkable opportunities for graduate students to show multiple pieces or large installations from final thesis projects representing two or three years of research, experimentation, critical thinking, and production.
Additionally, an exhibition of selected works by graduate students from different disciplines will be held at Sol Koffler Graduate Student Gallery at 169 Weybosset Street. The installation will be on view June 3–5 from 12–5pm.
