Art Center College of Design presents Drawing Fire, an exhibition curated by alumnus Brody Albert, bringing attention to the work of his grandfather, illustrator Carol Johnson. As a World War II correspondent, Johnson helped translate the immediate experience of war into raw observational sketches for nationally syndicated newspapers, conveying a first hand experience of the war into the households of thousands of Americans.

Vancouver-based artist, Jeff Wall (b. 1946) is widely recognized for both his pioneering photography and his influential writing on the medium and its place in contemporary art. Wall has exhibited regularly at the Marian Goodman Gallery in New York since 1989, and he has been the subject of numerous museum shows, including, most recently,"Jeff Wall: Tableaux, Pictures, Photographs 1996-2013," which opened at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam in 2014 before traveling to the Kunsthaus Bregenz, Bregenz, Austria. The exhibition opens at its final destination, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen , Denmark, this December. A comprehensive European survey, “Jeff Wall, Photographs 1978-2004,” opened at the Schaulager Museum, Basel, Switzerland in 2005 and subsequently appeared at London’s Tate Modern as “Photographs 1978-2004.” “Jeff Wall,” a retrospective organized by New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the San Francisco Museum of Art, opened two years later, in 2007, and traveled to The Art Institute of Chicago. To mark the occasion, MoMA published “Jeff Wall: Selected Essays and Interviews,” a collection bringing together 25 years of the artist’s words.

Wall earned his Masters of Arts at the University of British Columbia, where he graduated in 1970, and subsequently traveled to London to pursue a doctorate at The Courtland Institute (1970-73), where he studied with noted art historian T.J. Clark. Returning to Canada, Wall served as assistant professor at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (1974-5), and at Simon Frasier University (1976-87), and went on to lecture at the University of British Columbia. A galvanizing figure in the Canadian art world since the early 1970s, Wall has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Audain Prize for Lifetime Achievement (2008). In 2006 Wall was made a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and named an Officer of the Order of Canada the following year.

The Graduate Art Seminar lecture series at Art Center College of Design is a forum for graduate students, members of the Art Center community and the general public to enter into dialog with internationally recognized artists, critics, and art historians. The Seminar—a core component of Art Center’s Graduate Art program—takes place Tuesday evenings throughout the fall and spring terms. Admission is free for the general public.

Design, When Everybody Designs
An introduction to Design for Social Innovation

Monday, March 9, 2015
7 p.m. Lecture
8 p.m. Book Signing

In his latest book Design, When Everybody Designs (MIT Press, 2015), Manzini focuses on the cultural dimensions of design for social innovation.

Manzini will discuss how a new design culture can play a major role in triggering, supporting and directing social change. He proposes that this new culture should overcome the mainstream reductive ones, defined as "solution-ism" and "participation-ism," to become an agent of dialogic design processes and, more in general, design culture's ability to drive social conversations of the future with a new narrative.

A leading thinker in design for sustainability, Manzini is founder of the DESIS (Design for Social Innovation towards Sustainability) network of university-based design labs and has served in a number of professional roles at the Politecnico di Milano; University of the Arts London; Tongji University, Shanghai and Jiangnan University, Wuxi.

Limited seating available.
