Design Forum XIV: In Praise of Shadows
March 27, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - March 28, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
The sixteenth biennial Virginia Design Forum XIV: In Praise of Shadows embraces this theme through an exploration of craft and materiality. The program, which is intended to challenge and stimulate design and creative thinking, takes place on March 27–28, 2020, at the recently-opened Institute for Contemporary Art at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Through a series of conversations, the Design Forum showcases the work of talented individuals whose shared craft extends beyond the calculated and strictly quantitative into more holistic practice — whose leading-edge preoccupation with light and shadow extends the diversity of approaches to how designers seek beauty through form, space, and materiality.
