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.

The art of painter and polymath, Josh Smith is distinguished by both his mastery of multiple mediums (painting, collage, sculpture, print- and bookmaking), and his manner of animating the art of painting by upending it’s conventions. Smith’s best known works are paintings that feature the artists own name as their subject; in recent years the name has given way to motifs such as leaves, fish, skeletons, and sunsets, arbitrary-seeming choices he treats in manners by turn aggressive, playful, repetitive, and oblique.

Josh Smith (b 1976) is from Knoxville, Tennesse and lives and works between Pennsylvania and New York City. The subject of solo exhibitions at MUMOK, Vienna; Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève; and The Brant Foundation, Greenwhich, CT; Smith has also appeared in such notable surveys as The Generational: Younger Than Jesus at the New Museum, New York; The Painting Factory: Abstraction After Warhol at MOCA, here in Los Angeles and ILLUMInations at the 2011 Venice BiennaleHis work can currently be seen in The Forever Now: Contemporary Painting in an Atemporal World at MOMA, New York. He has exhibited regularly at Luhring Augustine, New York since 2006and his works are featured in the collections of major institutions, including Centre Pompidou, Paris; MUMOK, Vienna; and both The Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of Modern Art in New York.

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.

This idea must die.

What design ideas need to be put aside in order to make room for new thinking to advance?

Design has passed the tipping point of acceptance in business, and economic and technology conditions have reshaped how and why products are made. How should the practice of design and the identity of designers shift to respond to this evolution? This talk explores which biases, "best practices," and ideologies in design practice must evolve for designers to be successful in the coming times.
