Just a reminder that tonight at 5:30pm, Kendell Carter will be giving a visiting artist lecture at Hillside Auditorium! Kendell Carter’s of-the-moment artistic practice, in which he fuses art history with street culture, is not merely a meeting of high and low art. Rather his mixing of objects, materials, and design traditions—ranging from name-brand clothing and graffiti sculptures to toile designs and bronze-plated Timberland boots—channels a world in which social distinctions cease to exist. His work therefore functions as a catalyst for dialogue about issues of race, consumerism, art, design, utility, and architecture. Come see him tonight and be sure to check out his work in the Fine Arts Gallery this week!
The Arkansas Law Review came over to Studio 304 yesterday for a meeting with Identity Design 2017 students. This group project aims to produce a unique graphic element the represents The Arkansas Law Review and it’s growing influence on a national and global scale.
Futura: The Typeface, published by @laurencekingpub and written by Petra Eisele, Annette Ludwig and Isabel Naegele. A fascinating, in-depth study of the history and many uses of this famed typeface. Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, the story of Futura is a fascinating one. Charting its Bauhaus origins to its use as the first font on the moon in 1969, this book tells the story of how the typeface went from representing radicalism in design to dependability. It is durable and timeless, and is worthy of being rediscovered and celebrated. Great long read or just for a quick browse, available in studio 303.
