Critic’s Choice: Interventions in Culture & Capital at the RISD Museum
DATE Sunday, June 2, 2019
TIME 1:00pm - 4:00pm
PLACE The RISD Museum, 20 N Main St., Providence, Rhode Island
What truths, problems, and possibilities might be overlooked by regular museum goers, curators, and critics? Asserting lived experience as sufficient cred to act as a cultural critic, “Critic’s Choice” invites four Rhode Islanders who don’t visit art museums to oversee site-specific art interventions by local artists at the RISD Museum. The artworks push for transparency, access, and accountability.
The four critics – Laurilim Rosado, Stephan McCants, Orianna Rodriguez and Debra Harris – first visited the RISD museum as part of Look at Art. Get Paid.
“Critic’s Choice” is organized by Maia Chao and Josephine Devanbu – the artists behind Look at Art. Get Paid. – and features interventions by artists Dana Heng and Shey Rivera, and designer Lukas Eigler-Harding.
This activity is made possible in part by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support provided by the City of Providence Department of Art, Culture + Tourism.
