Evolving Graphic Design – Isthmus

media release: The exhibition, Evolving Graphic Design, will take place from May 24 to June 24, 2022, at UW-Madison.

For many years, graphic design was largely a predominantly white and European-centric field rooted in the Bauhaus and print design principles. But visual design education is rapidly shifting from a Western, print-centric area to a diverse, global one that eagerly employs emerging technology. This exhibition showcases evolving graphic design education, research, and techniques beyond print, crossing boundaries among creative coding, 3D printing, guerrilla projection, speculative design, performative sound, data visualization, human-centered design, augmented reality with activism, inclusive graphic design, and cultural identity impacted by globalization.

Exhibition Period: May 24, 2022 to June 24, 2022

Gallery Place: Art Loft Gallery and Backspace Gallery, University of Wisconsin Madison

Closing Reception: June 24, 2022, 6 pm, Art Loft Gallery, Art Lofts Building

Symposium, Evolving Graphic Design, June 23-24, 2022, from noon to 6 pm. Art Loft Conference Room. Free, but registration required.
