  • High&Low Bureau is a curatorial duo composed of Yael Messer and Gilad Reich. They curate exhibitions, film programs, performative events and publications, while engaging with a plethora of disciplines, media and modes of artistic expression.Their curatorial practice is dedicated to the exploration of artistic strategies that reflect on, and suggest alternatives to, specific social-political conditions.

  • Los Angeles is a city often described as having no center. Its art community has turned that "disadvantage" into an advantage and given itself a license for adventure. Organizations, galleries, and artists find decentralization to be an exciting option and they establish their addresses in unexpected neighborhoods and zones in the city and even beyond, in other cities and states. What are the challenges and advantages of this programmatic and conceptual strategy? What are the risks, to organization and audience alike? Is this necessary, and if so, is it sustainable?

Celebrated Graphic Designers and Artists to Converge for the 4th annual Design Week 2014

Design Week, June 15–21, 2014

A core component of Otis’ MFA Program, Design Week introduces students to the international design community. 

Design Week is a profound experience for students to engage with designers and other students who introduce diverse perspectives and new ways of thinking and practicing in a global world. This transformative experience shapes the culture of the department and confirms that collaboration, risk taking, and relationship building are the foundational elements of a successful practice.

Students from other institutions are welcome to participate during the week. Select schools include: Sint Lucas - Gent, Sint Lucas - Antwerp, Cal Arts, and Lucerne School of Graphic Design.

This year, Otis welcomed six recognized graphic design studios from four countries who hosted workshops over the course of the week and gave one-collective public lecture.
