Rhode Island School of Design 2015 MFA Graduate Show
June 25 – July 3, 2015

Opening Reception:
Thursday, June 25, 2015
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

“Six Degrees” is an exhibition that represents a selection of the work created by the 2015 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. Ann Fessler, Eva Sutton, and Steven Smith have led the graduate group critique. Students have benefited from individual and guest critiques from artists Brian Ulrich, Justin Kimball, Lisa Young, and Penelope Umbrico; critics Douglas Nickel and Alison Nordström; museum director Natasha Egan; and gallerist Brian Paul Clamp.

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.
