    Design as Social Agent

    With Steve Heller, Elliot Earls, Nicholas Blechman, Luba Lukova, Cliff Stolze, Caleb Neelon, PIXNIT, and Mirko Ilic Bringing together speakers from the fields of design, street art, music, and politics, this day-long event frames Shepard Fairey's work within the context of grassroots civic action, punk rock, and 80s graffiti and skate culture. How can we view his art and design within today's environment of fervent consumption, heightened consumerism, and political cynicism? A series of presentations, conversations, and gallery talks will explore how concepts of appropriation, plagiarism, legality, and process have been exploded.
