Pratt Institute and Surface will present a conversation between two luminaries of art and design, Jeffrey Deitch and Stefan Sagmeister, on Tuesday, March 31. The conversation is a Pratt President's Lecture and Surface Design Dialogues event. 

Creator of the influential Deitch Projects gallery, Deitch facilitated the rise of a new generation of artists for nearly 15 years. From 2010 to 2013, he served as director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Deitch is now working on bringing his influential Art in the Streets exhibition to New York. Sagmeister, a Pratt alumnus, is one of the most renowned graphic designers and typographers working today. He is co-founder of Sagmeister & Walsh, a design firm that creates identities, commercials, websites, apps, films, books, and objects. Deitch and Sagmeister will speak with Spencer Bailey, editor-in-chief of Surface magazine, about Deitch’s new book Live the Art, designed by Sagmeister.

The event will be held on Tuesday, March 31 at 7 PM in Memorial Hall Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required and can be made here.
