  • Creative Action and the Otis Community Radio class present weekly broadcasts each Monday.

     

    This week from 5:00 - 6:00 pm is The Girls Room with DJ Lonesome (Jaclyn Arellano), DJ Filth (Mady Preece), DJ Duchamp’s Urinal (Carly Goldstein). In this political climate, it is finally time to take charge of our own bodies and image. No more housewife norms to determine what a woman should look like. Join us in conversation with the tools of music and noise to express what it means to be a woman. We will challenge the definitions and misconceptions about masculinity and femininity, creating a space where women can feel free to ask questions and get answers from other women.

  • Patterns Bigger Than Any of Us
    Jesse Fleming / Pat O
    'Neill

    A two-person exhibition of recent large-scale video installations from Los Angeles-based artists Jesse Fleming and Pat O’Neill. Each artist raises questions in his work about the self in relation to others, collective norms, and the built environment. They direct us to see the links and fissures in our lives and the larger systems that we attempt to grapple with—from science to spirituality, and the spaces they straddle.

Visiting Artists

Celebrated Graphic Designers and Artists to Converge for the 4th annual Design Week 2014

Design Week, June 15–21, 2014

A core component of Otis’ MFA Program, Design Week introduces students to the international design community. 

Design Week is a profound experience for students to engage with designers and other students who introduce diverse perspectives and new ways of thinking and practicing in a global world. This transformative experience shapes the culture of the department and confirms that collaboration, risk taking, and relationship building are the foundational elements of a successful practice.

Students from other institutions are welcome to participate during the week. Select schools include: Sint Lucas - Gent, Sint Lucas - Antwerp, Cal Arts, and Lucerne School of Graphic Design.

This year, Otis welcomed six recognized graphic design studios from four countries who hosted workshops over the course of the week and gave one-collective public lecture.
