Rhode Island School of Design 2016 MFA Graduate Show
July 14 – 22, 2016

Opening Reception:
Thursday, July 14, 2016
6.00 – 8.00 pm

“Certain Things” is an exhibition of work created by the 2016 graduates of the RISD MFA Photography Program. The artists have been guided in critiques and thesis committee meetings by a rich and diverse group of faculty and guests. Eva Sutton, Brian Ulrich, and Steven Smith have led the graduate group critique. Students have benefited from individual and guest critiques from artists Atul Bhalla, John Gossage, Gillian Laub, Maria Martínez-Cañas, Lorie Novak, and Artie Vierkant; critics Douglas Nickel and Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa; museum directors and curators Natasha Egan (MOCP), Eva Respini (ICA), and Britt Salvesen (LACMA); and gallerist Brian Paul Clamp (ClampArt).

All graduates have completed a thesis book, monograph, and a portfolio of prints—now part of the RISD photo archive, which includes work by such former graduates as Bill Burke, Talia Chetrit, Jim Dow, Linda Connor, Emmet Gowin, David Benjamin Sherry, Christina Seely, and Francesca Woodman, among many others.
