Exhibition | Highlights: The RISD Graduate Thesis Book
All graduate students at RISD write, design and submit a Master’s thesis book—a lasting record of work, process, research and ideas. Each book is unique. The variety of approaches reflects RISD’s range of disciplines, their related professional practices and traditions, departmental priorities and the distinct interests and intentions of the thesis writer.
Highlights features 37 recent Master’s thesis books that are exemplary both overall and for their “highlights”—particular qualities of research, writing, documentation and design. It accompanies the publication of the first Book of Thesis Books, a guide in which annotations illuminate the many virtues of each book. The exhibition focuses on some of the most salient highlights themselves, extracting them out of the books’ pages and onto the walls and pedestals for close study. (The thesis books are there, too, of course, so stay and read awhile.)
Co-sponsored by the Graduate Commons and the Center for Arts & Language.
