Visiting Lecturer: Rachel Berwick

Rachel Berwick’s multi-media installations focus on the threshold between nature and culture as a means of exploring themes of extinction and loss, and our inevitable desire to recover that which is lost.  Her work has been included in exhibitions at venues such as the Serpentine Gallery, London; the 26th Bienal de São Paolo; the 7th International Istanbul Bienal; and Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.  In the U.S, she has exhibited at the Smithsonian American Art Museum; Mass MoCA, North Adams, MA; The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT; and Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York, among others. She is the recipient of fellowships from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, a Smithsonian Artists’ Research Fellowship and The Robert Rauschenberg Residency. Berwick received her MFA from Yale University School of Art and BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. She taught at Yale School of Art from 1991–99 before joining the faculty at RISD where she is professor and Head of the Glass Department.
