An Evening with AIGA and Artist & Designer Rebeca Méndez
October 18 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm
On Wednesday, October 18 from 6:45 to 9 pm, join us in welcoming AIGA Los Angeles for an evening with artist, designer, and UCLA professor Rebeca Méndez and enjoy live music by singer/songwriter Analiz Castillo, who will be performing some of Méndez’s favorite songs as we kick off the night.
Rebeca Méndez will present recent projects and introduce her new initiative, the UCLA CounterForce Lab—a research and fieldwork studio based at Design Media Arts and the School of the Arts and Architecture. The lab is dedicated to using design and art to develop creative collaborations, new fields of study, and methods to research, create, and execute projects around the social and ecological impacts of anthropocene climate change.
Méndez’s art is driven by her interest in perception and embodied experience–exploring design and media art in public space, critical approaches to public identities and landscape, and artistic projects based on field investigation methods. Register now to get an inside look at the design philosophy of one of Los Angeles’ own design icons. Click here to purchase tickets.
