The academic year has forced this blog to grind to a halt, (postings and musings to come this summer), but I do want to announce that Prince George's Community College has a couple of speakers next week, on May 4 (Jeff Gates) and May 6 (Victoria F. Gaitán).
6:30 P.M., Wednesday, May 4, Marlboro Hall, Room 2055
Jeff Gates -- Using Design for Change: the Chamomile Tea Party Posters
Founder of the Chamomile Tea Party, artist and designer Jeff Gates will discuss how effective design can be used to influence change. The lecture will examine his use of Photoshop, social media, and political activism. Jeff Gates' work was recently nominated for a People's Design Award from the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, and has been featured on the Huffington Post and Boing-Boing.com.
1:00 P.M., Friday, May 6, Marlboro Hall, Room 2080
Victoria F. Gaitán: process and obsession
Victoria Gaitán will discuss her photographic process, how to get something from seemingly unusable digital files, and her photographic obsessions with illness, memory, interpretations of pain, private and public intimacies, trauma, beauty and conditioned responses. Gaitán’s work has been written about on Brightest Young Things, and TBD.com.
