Work Play Money Love What It Is What Could Be... Both Neither Art Design

Participate in a group conversation about contemporary creative living and preview the new exhibition at Northern–Southern gallery. WORK PLAY MONEY LOVE WHAT IT IS WHAT COULD BE BOTH NEITHER ART DESIGN surveys creative practices that overlap cultures, primarily those of professional design and fine art, but also politics, business, and philanthropy. Never outliers, just rarely discussed—hybrid art-design practices have blossomed in the twenty-first century. The show is a conversation about art-design as a profession shaped by contradictory pressures and motives. We attempt to find—and share—ways to talk about the ways we work now.
