    This exhibit brings the artifacts of early republic Providence, c. 1790-1830 to life through mixed-media art. Visitors will enter the home of a typical lower-income Providence family and explore material culture, community relationships and the role of debt in everyday life. Curated by Traci Picard (MA’23), it is a final project for the class Public Amnesias and Their Discontents: Theories and Practices of Remembering.

    The Gallery is open Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm. Closed for the holidays December 23, 2022 - January 6, 2023 and January 16, 2023.

    Exhibit Opening: Facing Invisibility

    Rhode Island Hall

    Facing Invisibility is an exhibit by the students in ARCH 1622, “Art, Secrecy, and Invisibility in Ancient Egypt,” curated for the Joukowsky Institute by Professor Laurel Bestock. Ancient Egypt is well known for having produced large and eminently visible art and architecture. But a persistent theme in Egyptian visual culture is that of invisibility, of art made and then deliberately hidden or destroyed. The range of examples is vast and varied, suggesting a complex relationship between visibility and meaning. This exhibit explores how unseeable art intersects with themes of audience, agency, and time in ancient Egypt.
