“WE ARE WORKING ALL THE TIME.” This sentiment (which could be seen as a de facto motto for Piotr Szyhalski’s ongoing Labor Camp project) readily describes the breadth of his multidisciplinary practice. Focusing on issues of labor, communication, and the increasingly complex relationship between individuals and society, Szyhalski’s output ranges from poster design to decorative plates, multimedia sound installations to interactive web art, public actions to experimental music. His powerful project COVID-19: Labor Camp Report consists of 225 daily illustrations documenting his experience during the pandemic lockdown that also explore broader issues such as income inequality, voter suppression, and police violence. Szyhalski is a professor of design and media at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

Copresented by the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota.

This event will be held on YouTube Premier, streaming live from the Walker Cinema. The link to view will be available here the day of the presentation.

About the Insights Lecture Series

Insights is a design lecture series for progressive creatives. A unique collaboration between the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota, the series embraces the unexpected to present diverse, exploratory, and contemporary lecturers. Featuring perspectives from around the world, Insights gives voice to adventurous design thinkers and makers. These designers often pose challenges and push the edges of their profession, in turn inspiring us to identify new perspectives in our own work.

For over three decades, the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota have co-presented the Insights Design Lecture Series and brought the world’s most adventurous design thinkers and makers to the Twin Cities. Redefine your understanding of graphic design and dive into the thinking behind the work. Past lectures are archived on the Walker Art Center YouTube channel.
