We have been cataloging and uploading into RDID, the RISD Digital Image Database, a  fantastic collection of images of artwork by contemporary American artists. The works all featured in an exhibition held at the Royal Academy of Art in London in 2006, and they are a really varied group of paintings, installations, sculptures and photographs. In the words of the Royal Academy’s Secretary, “in this selection of the work of young American artists, each confronts not only their own fundamental questions, but also global poverty, inequality and population migration, not to mention the gigantic environmental problems that confront the world as a whole.” Have a look at this collection of images by logging into RDID with your RISD login, and clicking on Slideshows/U.S.A.
