To “hang ten” is to balance at the front of a surfboard, toes curling over the edge and into the water, as a wave’s action stabilizes the back end of the board. These ten artists, in the middle of their Painting graduate program at the Rhode Island School of Design, are enjoying dipping their toes into instability: exploring new media, trying on new visions, and diving into this summer venture both as individuals and as a team. We collectively brainstormed this exhibition title, and we chose and arranged works to foreground the course each is daring to chart through the art-ocean.
