GD Triennial: Call for Submissions
The RISD GD Triennial runs from Oct. 29 until Nov. 14 — submit work on the theme of “Portals” made in the Department in the last three years (alumni, yes! non-majors, yes!)
Submit your work here by October 21. Physical work needs to be in by Sunday, Oct 24.
Portals are many things: passages, windows, entrances, exits, thresholds, transitions. As visual communicators, our practice is one of opening portals into new ways of disrupting, discovering, and educating. And as we travel through those portals—from a volatile now towards a hazy, but hopeful, future—we must embrace the uncertain, constantly iterative process of that transition.
Contact an organizer with questions: Manny Sodhi, Iris Cho, Yimeng Yao, Annie Din, Ashley Yae, Minjun Choi, Varun Mehta or Christine Wang
Lecture: Deem Journal (Alice Grandoit, Isabel Flower, Nu Goteh)
Deem is a biannual print journal and online platform focused on design as social practice. Our beliefs: Design is the process of adding value. Design is a fundamental shared experience. Design is everywhere. Our intentions: Explore human-centric design frameworks independent of exclusive institutions and industry categories. Ask what design can do for communities by creating conversations that are transdisciplinary and intergenerational. Seek to uncover meaningful narratives, connections, and patterns that might help us better understand our histories and imagine our futures.
