Digital + Media Majors Launch Roving Gallery

10/20/2010

Thanks to the efforts of Jason Huff MFA 11 DM and Derek Paul Boyle MFA 11 DM, RISD students have another opportunity to show their work beyond the studio. Called Black Sheep Projects, their initiative is based on inviting students to submit ideas and work for consideration, and offering temporary venues for showcasing the work. Each month-long show is set up in alternative space in downtown Providence, with a guest juror from the contemporary art world selecting the work.

The first show opened in March 2010 with support from the Office of Student Life and Providence Downcity. Kristen Dodge, the director of judi rotenberg gallery in Boston, and Maya Allison, director of Pixilerations, each served as a juror for initial shows. Black Sheep accepts all types of work, including 2D, 3D, sculpture, jewelry, illustration and video. For an interview with Huff and Boyle about the project, check out this Hyperallergic blog post.
