Please join us on THURSDAY MAY 24 for an exhibit of work and research from the FAV/SEI-A sponsored course “Artists’ Literacies”.
The exhibit is being held in the office of the future VP for SEI on the 3rd floor of Prov-Wash; doors will be open from 5pm until 7:30pm.
“Artists’ Literacy Applied Research: Identifying and Intervening in Systems of Implicit Bias, Prejudice, and Perception Using Artists’ Knowledge Types” was an experimental course run as a multidisciplinary working group, with the aim of conceiving of new modes of external engagement for artists in all disciplines.
Artists Literacies conceives of new forms of knowledge unique to artistic practice, and this course aimed to harness those types of qualitative knowledge to help artists see how they can study, connect to, and strategically intervene in complex or problematic dynamic social systems. This will be a show of research, reflection, experimentation, and potential. We’re excited to share the outcomes of this first round of SEI-enabled learning at RISD.
Please note the early opening time to accommodate a busy evening of exhibitions!
