New Winter Class: Design & Social Practice

Winter 2016

Art 299/399

Tuesdays and Thursdays

This course explores the cross-disciplinary connections between graphic design and socially engaged art. Both disciplines are collaborative and place emphasis on audience/user experience. Topics covered include public intervention, site-specific interaction, and participatory modes of production—from print to web. Building from short exercises to more complex assignments, this course equips students to conceptualize, problem solve, and implement socially conscious art/design projects. Students are encouraged to work collaboratively to execute projects.

Failure Show Opens This Week


March 9 – 27, 2015
Reception Friday, March 13, 5-8pm

Within the disciplines of art and design, there is an inherent element of risk. Answers are not pre-determined, and outcomes are the natural extension of the biases, influences and processes we undertake. Failure occurs in abundance. We encounter it everywhere from the collapsing of a structure to the deliberate misinformation of agitprop. Even though artists and designers are prone to walk a path of (un)intended consequences, we have also notably used failure in our working practice intentionally. In this exhibition, students from the winter term course on Failure will be exhibiting their various investigations into what failure means socially, personally, and as part of a working practice.
