President's Forum

CalArts president Steven D. Lavine hosts a lively and thought-provoking roundtable discussion led by graphic design luminary Lorraine Wild -- one of this year's winners of the coveted AIGA Medal, the highest honor in the field of design. Focusing on the design of catalogues and other art publications, the panel examines the balance between the respective aesthetics of the designer and the showcased artist or collection; the role of the designer as mediator; and the emergence of West Coast institutions as champions of innovative design. Wild, who is renowned internationally for designing hundreds of books and catalogues, is joined on the panel by leading Los Angeles designers Gail Swanlund and Michael Worthington, plus Russell Ferguson, chief curator of the UCLA Hammer Museum.

Co-sponsored by AIGA Los Angeles.
