Visiting Artist Talk: Volume Inc

Date: 
Friday, January 24, 2020 - 12:00pm

Co-founders of San Francisco-based design firm Volume Inc., Adam Brodsley and Eric Heiman, discuss their gallery show This Will (Not) Be Easy. The digital age has gifted us infinite Pinterest, Behance, and Dribble scrolls of refined visual inspiration. These feeds betray the numerous iterations, the dead-ends, the frustration, and (if one is lucky) the a-ha moments necessary to create the designs we admire. The pretty pictures are barely footnotes in the creation story of their design work. Which is why they’ve left them (almost) completely out of this exhibition.

Jesse Harrod’s work manipulates and transforms materials to animate their sexual and sensual qualities and explore the intersections among queer kinship, support and sexuality.
