We Will Work With You! Wellington Media Collective
Lecture: Polly Cantlon, Design for Life

Polly Cantlon will provide a historical description of the Wellington Media Collective and its radical aspirations, contextualizing the group’s local and international significance in the terms of graphic design. Focusing on specific graphic works within the exhibition, she will assess the role of design in the creation of publics and as a form of participatory democratic practice.

Polly Cantlon is a former Senior Lecturer in Computer Graphic Design at the University of Waikato, and a current member of The Printer’s Web Marsden Research Project at Victoria University of Wellington. Her research interests focus on the history of design. She is contributing a substantial chapter, provisionally titled “Design Democracy,” to the book We Will Work With You – Wellington Media Collective 1978-1998, edited by Ian Wedde with Mark Derby and Jenny Rouse, Victoria University Press, 2013.

Exhibition runs from:
23 Oct - 21 Dec 2012
