All graduate students at RISD write, design, and submit a Master’s thesis book—a lasting record of their work, process, research, and ideas. The HIGHLIGHTS exhibition 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.)
Curated by the Center for Arts & Language, with generous support from the Graduate Commons.
