Artifact and Process: The Evolving Field of Graphic Design

February 8-March 22, 2016




For much of the twentieth century, graphic design was synonymous with commercial art, and graphic designers made their names in advertising, magazine layout, and corporate identity development. This exhibition highlights the way that the field of graphic design has expanded to include subjective, research-based, collaborative practices that go beyond business and commercial applications and are, rather, aligned with conceptual art and activism. This exhibition is guest curated by Jason Dilworth, assistant professor of Visual Arts and New Media at the State University of New York at Fredonia.

The Weeks Gallery is located on the second floor of the Arts and Sciences Center at Jamestown Community College. All events are free and open to the public. More info: 716.338.1301, facebook.com/WeeksGallery.
These programs are funded in part by the JCC faculty Student Association.
