(5.2) The RISD Graduate Thesis Show is up now through June 2. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
RISD’s 2018 thesis exhibition Grad Show presents an expansive range of fine art and design work by the 209 students completing master’s degrees at Rhode Island School of Design this spring. On view in the Rhode Island Convention Center’s 28,000-sf Hall A, the show gives graduate students the space to exhibit multiple pieces or large installations from a final body of thesis work. This represents two or three years of research, experimentation, critical thinking and production in one of RISD’s 16 graduate departments.
Seen here is a detail from an oil on canvas painting by Marisa Adesman whose work appears in the graduate thesis exhibition.
