Lecture: "Street Graphics in Zambia"

Upcoming lecture:   Street Graphics in Zambia: Global History and Regional Knowledge   This talk will explore the history and practice of painted signs and other graphic design on the streets of one of the most rapidly-developing capital cities in Africa. Design and lettering in Lusaka, whether rendered in paint or pixels, reveal the relationship between regional attitudes about design and marketing and a deluge of international products and media. Since gaining independence from the UK in 1964, Zambia has largely embraced foreign interests and aid, and this openness has challenged designers in Lusaka to transform global consumerism into something cooperative and positive.  Day/Time: Thursday, April 11, 2013 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  Location: TDC Conference Center 347 W 36th St, Ste 603 (between 8th and 9th Avenues) NY, NY 10018  Fees: TDC Members $5 Non Members $20 Student Non Members $15  See more details  here .
