"We had a tremendous turn out! The gallery was full and everyone was engaged. This was the most diversely interactive exhibition that we produced. This show was very conceptual and the students executed it," commented professor Lori Rubeling, who is also the curator for the GALLERY@Case[werks] in Baltimore.
Seniors in the Exhibition Design class were given an open-ended creative brief to explore Visual Communication Design specifically in a gallery context. From there, students practiced design thinking, and through collaboration, discussion, and editing arrived at this year's exhibition concept of Memorandoms. The show explored the powerful world of interactive message-making today. It analyzed society's relationship to social media messaging and how it affects people's attitudes, engagement, and behaviors.
In addition to creating the artwork, students were responsible for designing, curating, installing, and promoting the exhibition. They sent out their message about the show through traditional print pieces as well as social media campaigns. #sumemorandom
