Dorner Prize 2019
Dorner Prize, a juried competition for RISD students to create site-specific, temporary projects at the RISD Museum, was first established in 1995. These artistic interventions can take the form of a physical, digital, or programmatic encounter, and can examine, critique, or celebrate the Museum’s collections, architectural idiosyncrasies, habits of visitation, and or/web presence. Jurors this year are Dominic Molon, Curator of Contemporary Art, and Kourtnie Aileru (RISD MFA D+M 2017), Critic, Sculpture Department.
Dorner Prize, named for distinguished RISD Museum director Alexander Dorner (tenure 1938–1941), is made possible by a generous anonymous gift.
