ClampArt is proud to present an exhibition of the work created by the 2018 graduates of the RISD MFA Photography Program. These artists have been guided in critiques and thesis committee meetings by a rich and diverse group of faculty and guests. Odette England, Brian Ulrich, and Farah Al Qasimi have led the graduate group critique. Students benefited from individual and guest critiques from artists Kelli Connell, Xaveria Simmons, Daniel Shea, Penelope Umbrico, Olaf Otto Becker, Laia Abril, Jason Fulford & Tamara Shopsin, and Doug DuBois; curators Alison Nordström (Independent Scholar) and Karen Irvine (Deputy Director and Chief Curator, MoCP); 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, and Francesca Woodman, among many others.
