Free virtual talk — no registration needed — join us!

Originally scheduled as an in-person event for March 2020 but postponed due to the pandemic, this never-before-seen prerecorded talk will be streamed on March 30 at 7 pm (CDT) on YouTube Premiere via the Walker event page.

Join in conversation with Hassan Rahim directly during and after the live webcast via the YouTube Premiere comments section.

Combining a deeply collaborative approach with a sophisticated understanding of style, Hassan Rahim is a meticulously obsessive visual artist and designer.

His poetic output evokes an uncanny world in which historical references hide in subtle production techniques, childhood fantasies are laid bare, and the cultures of skateboarding, clubbing, art, and fashion collide.

Rahim is cofounder of publisher Shabazz Projects and his clients include VSCO, Sony Music, Urban Outfitters, Warp Records, Willo Perron, and more.


This is a free virtual event. No registration required.

A link to this event will be posted the day of the event

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.
