Second First

July 27, 2009

The MFA Design Criticism Department is starting its second year at SVA with an announcement of its first critic-in-residence: Peter Hall—a design critic and senior lecturer in design at the University of Texas at Austin—will spend the second week of December in the classroom, assisting the program’s first graduating class with their thesis projects. As part of Hall’s residency at SVA, he will also be giving a talk entitled Writing Design History: Problems and Provocations, on Tuesday, December 8, 6 – 8pm, at 136 West 21st Street, 2nd floor; admission is free.

In other D-Crit news, several students from the department’s inaugural class are already bringing their critical skills to print and online design publications. Over the summer, John Cantwell wrote about Trump Tower for Design Observer; Frederico Duarte contributed to Icon; Emily Leibin penned “Future Advancement” for Surface; Alan Rapp wrote for Dwell; and Angela Riechers’ work appeared in Voice: AIGA Journal of Design.
