R.K. Projects


Founded in 2010 by Tabitha Piseno and Sam Keller, R.K. Projects was established as a nomadic conceptual vehicle for displacing the gallery framework via migrating curatorial projects, experimental events, and commissions that are presented in open commercial, industrial, and institutional real-estate properties in Providence and New York. Projects include exhibitions, performances, site-specific installations, editions, film screenings, readings, and the annual experimental/noise music and performance festival P.U.F.F.E.R.S.S, (Providence Underground Freak Fest Eco-Rave Shaman Slam) dedicated to regional and international underground artists and musicians. R.K. Projects originated as a way to assert an experimental, autonomous, DIY spirit of making and sharing art in various contexts.
