1. Designing ArtPrize: Ten Years of Experimenting in Public
Kevin Buist, ArtPrize
Kevin Buist, the artistic director of ArtPrize, will talk about the evolution of branding ArtPrize over its first ten years. ArtPrize places an emphasis on innovative design, from the website and app to posters, event guides, and signage. But design at ArtPrize goes much deeper than branding and wayfinding. This talk will explore the ways design is employed by ArtPrize to iterate new ways for artists to find challenging exhibition opportunities, and reinvent the way artists to connect to audiences.
