More Information

As an active, participatory conversation about contemporary communications design, this exhibition explores the breadth of the field and its many possible practices through a selection of alumni contributions from the Undergraduate and Graduate Communications Design programs. Individual projects, open workshops, panel discussions and lectures activate the space and highlight the many forms of current practice.

In-house and independent, practical and speculative, long-term and on-the-fly—for contemporary practitioners, points of connection, infusion, contradiction and separation with the field are acknowledged and embraced. Facilitators, researchers, activists, collaborators, analysts, synthesizers, opportunity seekers, question-posers—communications designers move fluidly between roles using their work to build community in a shifting landscape.
