ICA/AIGA DESIGN SERIES: DESIGN AS SOCIAL AGENT
HAPPENINGS IN THE BANK OF AMERICA ART LAB
The Next Generation
Organized in partnership with the Berwick Research Institute
Shepard Fairey's practice has blown open the ways that emerging artists and designers think about content, form, and message. Hear what the next generation of artists have learned, adapted, or rejected from Fairey's work and where it is leading them. Designer Elliott Earls will interview Boston-based artists including a representative from Goldenstash, Dana Woulfe, and Kenji Nakayama.
The Berwick Research Institute is a non-profit art organization that provides emerging artists with the opportunity for fiscal sponsorship and a laboratory where they can experiment with new forms and concepts without the pressures of a commercial environment. The Berwick brings artists and audiences together to foster a community that is based on dialog, while encouraging play as a means of doing research.
Elliott Earls is a designer, performance artist, and typographer, and currently serves as Designer-in Residence at Cranbrook Academy of Art. His studio, Apollo Program, combines nonlinear digital video, spoken word poetry, music and design; clients include Elektra Entertainment, Nonesuch Records, Scribner Publishing, The Cartoon Network (U.K.), and Janus Films.
Goldenstash is the moustached mason adorning the nooks and alleys of Boston. Promoting a character that is both comically seductive and unapologetically womanizing.
Dana Woulfe is a self-confessed artist, designer, and Converse Employee. He became a part of the local graffiti scene while developing his design and illustration skills through four years of school.
Originally from Hokkaido Japan, Kenji Nakayama now resides in Boston, and creates dynamic multi-layered urban landscapes.
