PAST: ART: "Non Serviam: New Directions in Graphic Design" at the DC Arts Center in Adams Morgan FRI, Sept 13th - SUN, Oct 13th, Free

Non Serviam: New Directions in Graphic Design at the DC Arts Center in Adams Morgan
Free
On view Friday, September 13th - Sunday, October 13th

"Graphic design communicates ideas en masse, a universally legible medium in service to commerce and clients alike.  Yet some of the most compelling designers today are producing singular, idiosyncratic work of a highly personal nature. What they create is an end unto itself, an unalloyed expression of the artist." Curated by: Jessica K. Pavone. Mentor Curator: Helen Frederick. "The designers in this show—Martin Venezky, Benjamin Critton, Keetra Dean Dixon and JK Keller, Carolyn V. Marsden, Anther Kiley—are heterogeneous, yet all are expanding and radicalizing the field. They are transforming and transmuting their medium into something new—expressive and singular, challenging and unexpected, idiosyncratic and impractical. Non Serviam presents works seeding the form’s improbable bloom."

About the American Scandal Tour: "Which congressman held a press conference from an exotic dancing club? Who shot his wife's lover and got away with it? Who challenged the press to dig up dirt on him and lost? Lurid "tails" and excesses of human nature abound unapologetically at every turn. Washington DC is as famous for its dastardly deeds as for its architectural beauty or even the work done on Capitol Hill. Travel through time on our American Scandal Audio Tour, which serves as a humorous stroll through the indiscretions of our Founding Fathers all the way up to present day political high jinks."
