RISD Museum Debuts Manual: A Journal About Art and Its Making

manualWith its fresh Project Projects-designed identity and website in place, the RISD Museum (formerly known as The Museum of Art Rhode Island School of Design) is getting hands-on with publications. Yesterday’s “Design the Night” event in Providence celebrated the launch of Manual: a journal about art and its making.

The academic arts journal-meets-design magazine, helmed by editor-in-chief Sarah Ganz Blythe with S. Hollis Mickey, will be published each fall and spring, using the museum’s collections, exhibitions, and collaborations as an impetus for essays and interviews, artist interventions, and archive highlights.

The inaugural “Hand in Hand”-themed issue (pictured) draws upon the expression first recorded in the 16th century, and includes cartoonist James McShane on the intaglio printing process, curator Elizabeth Williams‘ peek into the museum’s archive to reveal the production designs of Gorham Manufacturing Company, and curator Kate Irvin‘s exploration of Bauhaus artist Gunta Stölzl‘s proposal for a double-weave textile.
