DIVERSEWORKS ON WEDNESDAYS
Five University of Houston graphic design graduate students – Jim DeVega, Laura Hill, Seth Lapeyrouse, Allen Van Luu, and Jason Wheeler – were tasked with conceptually responding to exhibition artists Chelsea Knight and Mark Tribe’s work through personal investigations that converge cultural, social, historical, methodological, and/or technological contemporary issues within a graphic design context. This graduate-level graphic design seminar offered through the University of Houston School of Art encourages students to pursue advanced research in graphic design and critical theory. The students worked together with Professor of Art Sibylle Hagmann and DiverseWorks Associate Curator Rachel Cook to push the boundaries of design thinking and visual expression. Each student will give a presentation about their project and process, and each project will be on view in the DWOW gallery space.
