By attending an AIGA event, you agree to abide by the Code of Conduct.

Prem Krishnamurthy has a polymorphic practice that includes design, education, curating, writing, and art-making.

Currently, Krishnamurthy directs Wkshps, a multidisciplinary design consultancy, and organizes the Department of Transformation, an emergent, itinerant workshop that practices collaborative tools for social change.

Previously, he founded the design studio Project Projects and the exhibition space P! in New York. A Cooper Hewitt National Design Award recipient, Krishnamurthy continually investigates individual, group, and organizational identity through the development of new ways of thinking about, and approaching, design.

This will be a live, in-person event.

The video will be available on the Walker Channel later this spring.
There will be no livestream, so please join us.

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, dive into the thinking behind the work, then hang out after the lectures to meet the lecturers, grab a drink, and chat with your fellow design lovers.
Past lectures are archived on the Walker Art Center YouTube channel.
