A Myriad Marginalia is an exhibition and experimental studio course at the RISD Museum led by the members of Raqs Media Collective during their residency as the Vikram and Geetanjali Kirloskar Visiting Scholars in Painting at Rhode Island School of Design. Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula, and Shuddhabrata Sengupta explore manuscript marginalia with RISD students to develop a body of artistic, philosophical, and narrative resources and produce an experimental manuscript together. A gallery becomes the working space while Raqs is in residency, featuring source material, work in progress, and eventually the final manuscript along with related projects. Visitors are encouraged to attend class discussions and events, and interact with materials.
