Masterclass Lecture Series: Sam Carter
January 18 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us over the Fall 2018 + Spring 2019 semesters for a Masterclass lecture series with Sam Carter: Look and Visual Language – Canadian Design Stories
Masterclass 3: Eras of Canadian Design: Theories, Stories, Wars, Social, Political and Cultural Perspectives
Over centuries, Canada’s design has been celebrated by people from all regions and all walks of life in Canada and other parts of the world. But what does Canada actually look like? Is there such a thing as Canadian design, a Canadian look, a visual language, a style or spirit of place? This four-part Masterclass lecture series answers these questions the best way possible: with over centuries of great, functional and fun design–all 100% ‘Canadian’, all guaranteed to raise a smile of pride, recognition and joy.
Sam Carter, professor emeritus, has taught for over 45 years, at today’s Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. Carter has a keen interest in interdisciplinary projects combining art, design, craft, science and technology within local and global communities. Carter’s work includes public art, museum exhibitions, interpretative centers, special events and ceremonies throughout Canada and other parts of the globe. He studied art, landscape architecture and design history and has curated numerous traveling exhibition and interactive online courses offered by ECUAD titled Canadian Design History/Theory, Pacific Rim Design History/Theory and British Columbia Design History and Theory.
