Kitchen explores the nature of expeditions
apexart– New York City
18th Unsolicited Proposal Program:
Following a month-long voting period in which 170 jurors from around the world evaluated 472 proposals investigating diverse subjects in a crowd-sourced, meritocratic process that focuses on the strength of the idea, apexart has announced the three winning exhibitions of the 18th Unsolicited Proposal Program. RISD is represented in one of the three exhibitions presented at apexart as part of the 2015–16 exhibition season.
Shona Kitchen (Assistant Professor and Department Head, Digital + Media) and Aly Ogasian, D + M MFA’15, (with Jennifer Dalton Vincent) explore how the nature of expeditions has translated into the modern day with archaeologists, engineers, scientists, and artists exploring a variety of realms, geographical and beyond, while maintaining the same eager hunger to uncover the unknown as the world travelers of early expeditions.
