Inspired by American Novelist, Toni Morrison’s statement, “I stood at the border, stood at the edge and claimed it my central,” participating designers have developed individual statements addressing issues of im/migration and belonging.
Through a research-driven process, each designer’s goal will demonstrate innovative problem-solving solutions that visually address wide-ranging topics of migrant narratives. Such narratives range from the very act/experience of migrating, to outcomes such as identity, historic phenomenons of human dispersion, government policy, and current events. These narratives will be executed through multiple media platforms designed to represent each designer’s unique practice.
With the intent to reach a larger audience, the RU-N Arts, Culture & Media Department will host the senior graphic design exhibition off-site for the first time.
Exhibiting Designers include:
Katherine Almonte, Monique Antoine, Lola Balla, Windell Brown, Natalia Dymora, Karen Fajardo, Marylin Gomes, Josh Hana, Thomas Johnson, Kiana Jones, Angel Juarez, Danielle Kerr, Jahi Lendor, David Lisi, Lizel Lizaso, Joanna Mantilla, Patrick Moreira, Yasmine Osman, Alex Pozo, Tabitha Prophete, Carmen Santiago, Susanna Seery, Salma Shahin, Renaldo Spooner, and Aldo Villareal.
