Curators of Graphic Design: Now in Production, Andrew Blauvelt and Ellen Lupton, along with graphic designers, Jessica Helfand of Winterhouse Studios and Prem Krishnamurthy of Project Projects, engage in discussion with RISD faculty. These designers and innovators debate the past, critique the present, and imagine the future of graphic design by using the design-driven magazines, books, posters, branding programs, typography, titling sequences for film and television, and information graphics in the exhibit. A panel conversation following explores the concept of the designer as producer (see Critical Encounters, Part II, held later in the day).

Co-sponsored with RISD’s Graphic Design Department.

Faculty & students: free; members: $10, non-members: $25 (includes admission).
