WHO ARE WE?
We are a club comprised of student designers and artists at RMCAD. The club was founded by instructors, Tobias Fike, Jeff Page and student Alex Killgore. This club is technically for RMCAD students only although we will gladly collaborate with outside artists and organizations for projects.
The mission of the New Genres Club at RMCAD is to expose students to alternative perspectives and strategies beyond traditional practices in visual art. This club is a lab and a creative forum for bringing more challenging work to the RMCAD ecosystem- encouraging students to explore the vast boundaries between media. As a club we create collaborative projects taking the form of performances, happenings, screenings and exhibitions.
The NEW GENRES CLUB invigorates the RMCAD campus with inspiring creative energy. We create experimental projects on and off campus with a fun group of your peers along with Tobias and Jeff. Many of our projects will take place throughout the city, beyond RMCAD. By joining this club you will gain substantial professional development experiences while interfacing with arts institutions and prominent community members. This club will also look great on your resume 🙂
WHAT WE DO
We will meet every other week (approximately) during the academic year. During meetings we will plan our future projects which will involve strategizing, building, testing materials, coordination and collaboration.
