Exhibition Identity and Curation, 2022Rhode Island School of Design

Highlights from the Impermanent Collection

Highlights from the Impermanent Collection was designed to feature the work of students enrolled in the Graphic Design MFA Program at the Rhode Island School of Design. It is a celebration of multimodal approaches to the discipline, both analog and digital. As the statement indicates, the cohort uses its diverse “affinities as conceptual ground for experimentation, as active surfaces for communication. These practices form connections; they generate community. We celebrate the process; we celebrate each other.”

This exhibition opened amidst an ongoing strike by RISD’s facilities staff—we used this moment to position ourselves in solidarity and to act as an information hub for present and future negotiations.
