Garland Kirkpatrick: Ad Nauseam
Astoria Visual Arts, Astoria, OR - Sep 12 – Oct 3
Graphic designer Garland Kirkpatrick, a professor of design at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, takes the language of advertising and uses it for social messages. There is a punk rock edge to his layout and color choices, and an in-your-face use of type. He has always been fascinated by the overlooked African roots of modernism and the cultural impact of design. Now is his time.
