Critical Encounters: Lines of Thought
Chace Center Galleries
Drawing can capture a fleeting thought or externalize the germ of an idea. It can synthesize an elaborate plan or brainstorm multiple solutions to a problem. Explore and experience a variety of approaches to drawing processes, historic and contemporary, global and experimental with artists, scholars, scientists, and students across disciplines.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibit Lines of Thought and co-sponsored with RISD’s department of Experimental and Foundation Studies.
Free, registration requested.
