Meet in Ancient Egyptian Gallery. First session, 1-2 pm, Session repeats 2:30-3:30 pm.

Consider the display of an ancient Egyptian priest, Nesmin, using history, place, and created imagery with Jay Simple (MFA 2018 Photography). This artist-led exploration disrupts the exhibition of Africans and their descendants in historical and contemporary contexts and questions the responsibility of institutions in this practice.

Work in Process invites you to learn about the processes RISD students use to create art and maintain a studio practice.
