Everything you see is skewed. Our eyes make sure of it. What happens if we turn those blind spots into insights? This lecture uses side-by-side images to unpack the relationships between typography, and seemingly disparate studies, from chair design to Fosse’s choreography. The talk begins with a tote bag.
Calil Arguedas-Russell, the Rhoda Lubalin Fellow at the Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography, delivers this lecture as part of the fellowship. An artist and designer from West Palm Beach, FL in his fourth year in the School of Art, Calil Arguedas-Russell's practice centers on research, design, and printmaking.
The Rhoda Lubalin Fellowship is awarded annually to a selected senior student(s) (or seniors graduating in December) within the School of Art, who has focused on graphic design. Endowed in 1987 by Mrs. Rhoda Lubalin in honor of her husband, Herb Lubalin, the Fellowship is a research-based project that uses the Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography collection as an entry point. Students are granted special access to the Center while they work with the Curator and Archive Coordinator to execute a unique project that will make a lasting commitment to the Herb Lubalin Study Center. The selection is made based on proposals received from interested students. The students must have taken, or are currently taking, at least one advanced-level design course to be eligible.
Located in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)
