Through contemporary practice and design history Silas Munro will discuss how his collaboratively run studio practice, poly-mode helps organizations embrace cultural diversity and increase community involvement. In a series of contexts, design shapes containers for a Los Angeles artist advocating for women and vulnerable populations, community access to art in Inglewood, and rewrites the legacy of 20th-century modernism by expanding design history to include the activist data visualization of W.E.B. Du Bois and his students of color.
