The Graduate Fall Position Presentation is a point of departure: an event—this fall, on Zoom—that demonstrated a theoretical position and visual progress in the first semester of the final year. See Kit Son Lee’s presentation on our Vimeo channel.

The risd.gd faculty stand in solidarity with our Black and Indigenous faculty and students of color, with our POC faculty and students, and with the Black Lives Matter movement. We are unanimous in working together against racism and discrimination, toward a just and equitable future. Read our anti-racism statement
