A Slogan Class: 3000 Word Chant!
Thursday 14 October 2021 - Saturday 16 October 2021
The Ignorant Art School, Sit-in Curriculum #1
Building on the ideas in a workshop during sit-in #1, this workshop facilitated by designer Neil McGuire will explore ways of using words, letters and slogans, combined with some basic computer-aided randomisation, to create a collaborative digital protest generator.
Participants will also explore hand-drawn lettering and design, looking at the (many) ways letters (and words) carry meaning.
This is limited capacity in-person event.
Neil McGuire is a designer and teaches part-time at Strathclyde University in the Architecture department. He works with artists, architects, writers, theatre makers, and other designers on a range of projects across print and digital media, exhibitions and events. Projects include the curation of an exhibition on Graphic Design and Politics, the creation, with jeweller Marianne Anderson, of ‘the Golden Tenement’ (an alternative souvenir for the 2014 Commonwealth Games); Test Unit (an art, design and architecture summer school), and Then/Now (a public art commission for the Forth and Clyde canal).
The Ignorant Art School at Cooper Gallery, DJCAD is supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland and Henry Moore Foundation.
