OPENING: RISD Business: Sassy Signs and Sculptures by Alejandro Diaz

Join P-Collective member Raghav, for this unique opportunity to meet and interact with artist, Alejandro Diaz during the opening of his show at the RISD Museum!

Opening celebration with the artist, Thursday, November 15, 6-8 pm.
Free, all welcome.


Have your photo taken with a life-size model of the artist’s aunt, receive a free toaster* with every new Museum membership, and visit the Diaz Art Foundation in this exhibition of recent works.

Ranging from quaint stereotypes of Mexican identity to current socio-economic and art-world commentary, Alejandro Diaz’s text-based works and installations use language as a form of cultural critique and resistance. Conceptual and campy, his humor-infused politics and use of everyday materials are emblematic of his ongoing involvement with art as a form of entertainment, activism, public intervention, and free enterprise.

The exhibition also features Diaz’s iconic series of cardboard signs, which the artist will make and sell only on opening night, November 15, for an unbeatable $20 each.


*Limited availability.

    Hey everyone, Raghav and I are at the Benefit Street entrance of the museum, not the one on N Main St.

    We'll surround the round couch behind the huge Exit sign!

    I just found out that I have to go to a wake so I may not make it. Not sure yet.

    Thanks, Peter! I won't be able to stick around much longer after the event, so it's helpful to have a place to congregate afterwards.

    I got a table with drink specials at the Whiskey Republic for the after party.
