Exhibition | Graduate Thesis Show

The 2018 Graduate Thesis Exhibition presents an expansive range of fine art and design work by the 209 students completing master’s degrees at RISD this spring. On view in the RI 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.

Free and open to the public, the much-anticipated show draws a wide audience from the RISD community and people throughout the Providence area and beyond. A lively opening reception helps mark the beginning of festivities leading up to Commencement and, on the day of the ceremony, the show gives guests a wide-angle view of the diverse work grad students make here. It's a celebration of the Class of 2018’s accomplishments and of the creativity they will bring to the world upon graduating.
