Insights Design Lecture Series

Walker Art Center, Minneapolis

7 – 28 March 2017

This year, the programme of events at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis also includes the “Insights Design Lecture Series” at which various designers from the area of graphics will be speaking. One particular feature of the museum’s programme is that all lectures are transmitted in a live webcast.

The first speaker in the series is Rob Giampietro, a designer and author working at Google. Previously, Giampietro has written for cultural magazines and worked in the New York studio of Project Projects. On 7 March 2017, he will be giving an insight into his working methods and the changing culture of design at Google. On 14 March, there will be a reading with an emphasis on illustration. The colourful people depicted in Andy Rementer‘s childlike images sometimes have only one eye and are always painted in bright hues, which is a result of his slight colour blindness. He is showing his illustrations, hand-painted logos and whimsical beings. On 21 March, there will be a lecture by Clara Balaguer and Kristian Henson, who work for the Office of Culture and Design (OCD). Balaguer describes the OCD as “a social practice platform for artists, designers, witers and assorted projects in the developing world”. The series will be rounded off by a lecture by Richard Turley, whose work is based in the area of branding and who is currently working as an editorial designer at Wieden und Kennedy. This lecture will take place on 28 March.



The speakers will begin their talks at 7 p.m., tickets cost 24 US dollars (concessions 10 dollars) and the whole lecture series can be purchased for 72 US dollars (concessions 30 dollars).


There is a live transmission for those who cannot attend in person and this will be stored later in the well-stocked museum archive. Viewers can comment and ask questions on the current event on Twitter on #Insights2017.
