Design World exhibition examines work of influential designers
Students from Associate Professor Santanu Majumdar’s Professional Practices Class have been researching work by influential designers across the globe. The research paper will be presented in the form of an exhibition, on view in the Center for Art & Theatre’s Contemporary Gallery from Oct. 30 – Dec. 8, visitors from various disciplines are invited to learn more about these designers and the impact they have made on everyday life. An opening reception will be on Nov. 1 at 5 p.m.
“This project help students to understand a broader view of design as a discipline and the impact it creates, instead of learning just graphic design. The design world is becoming much more diverse and cross-disciplinary, so to better understand design as a whole they need to read and discuss design from various angles,” said Majumdar. “This exhibition showcases the importance of design and opens up possibilities of collaboration with other areas in the University. Today several disciplines and work areas use Design Thinking as their process to identify the core problem. The exhibition is targeted to students from engineering to business to fashion and many others.”
All events are free and the public is invited to attend.
