Ritual and the objects that help to define it are a place of invention - traditional, variant, and possibly radical. The exhibition features work by Brown and RISD students who explore the idea of ritual from its traditional contexts to the ritual of the every day.

The exhibit boasts a rich diversity of work; the selected pieces range from performance, photography, readymade art, textile to design. The show’s winner, Sarah Young (RISD Class of 2010), will receive a cash prize, an internship at the International Center of Photography, a review in a major Jewish journal, and the opportunity to exhibit the piece at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.

*Opening Reception: 4- 7pm, October 11th. Remarks by Daniel Belasco at 6pm
