In association with the prestigious 2010 Inform Award, an annual accolade presented to graphic designers who develop a practice within the context of applied and contemporary art, recipient Zak Kyes, a Swiss/American designer, will present a lecture about his recent work and his exhibition Zak Kyes Working with . . ., previously on view at the Museum for Contemporary Art Leipzig; the Graham Foundation in Chicago; and The Architectural Association in London.

Kyes will also speak about the release of the publication for the exhibition, which he edited. Zak Kyes Working with . . . brings together a range of works by Kyes as well as works by a host of collaborators including architects, artists, writers, curators, editors, and graphic designers, presenting contemporary graphic design as a practice that mediates -- and is mediated by -- its allied disciplines.

Following the presentation, Kyes and Graphic Design faculty member Jon Sueda will discuss the publication, followed by a book signing.
